Ryleigh was discharged today. She is definitely in a full flare as scopes and tests have determined. The disease is in various parts of her digestive system causing her pain, fatigue, and discomfort. She is on a steroid again but it is different then the prednisone as it should not cause as many systemic side effects. This makes all of us very happy as the prednisone was brutal for side effects. So, the plan is for her to try this new treatment and hope that her rebooted immune system will adjust better to the new meds and she will go easily into a remission. We are looking forward to returning home tomorrow and get back to Chloe and the wonderful puppies of ours….I am sure Ryleigh will be cuddling plenty with our Remy!
I find it odd how comfortable Ryleigh and I were with slipping into hospital mode again. We have connected with a variety of staff and found it reassuring to see their kind and caring faces as we navigate yet another hospital stay. We figured out what needed to be done. And hopefully Ryleigh will be on her way back to be fun, energetic, and witty self.
Thanks for all the kind and caring comments — can get lonesome in the wee hours of the morning and I appreciate the support. Yippee to coming home..get to work on report cards…much more fun than the hospital (all about perspective).
