Post op checkup

I held my breath as we entered the hospital for Mia's first post op checkup this morning. Mia has done beautifully since coming home and we haven't noticed any signs of her being in distress. Still I knew her chest x-ray would determine our fate. There were two possible scenarios. If the "stubborn left chest fluid" had increased we would be readmitted to the hospital. If it stayed the same or absorbed we would be allowed to return home. WE ARE HOME TO STAY! Her chest x-ray was clear and the fluid is GONE! PRAISE GOD! It feels amazing to breathe that last sigh of relief and to finally be able to really enjoy being at home.
