All together now

Maisie came home this afternoon. She is feeling much better and is happy to be with James and her toys. 

She got a bath to get rid of the sticky gunk from the hospital and had her oxygen delivered. Maisie will be on 1/4th of a liter at night and during naps. 

The PICU at Swedish was top notch and they did a great job managing her care. I would highly recommend them to anyone in our situation. We were well attended to and they were skilled at handling everything we were dealing with. We hoped to never be there, but it likely isn't going to be the last time. 

Our PSA is this: frequent hand washing for 20 seconds is the best way to prevent the spread of disease. If you feel sick, stay home from school or work. You may be contagious before you exhibit symptoms, so if you have been around sick people it may be a good idea to stay away from anyone who is at risk to develop complications (seniors, infants and toddlers, and those with immune disorders).
