February 2008 Wow! Where to begin….. This was a bad month. Jocelyn started out the month getting pneumonia. We spent 3 days at WakeMed Hospital. We came home with a suction machine to help with the extra secretions. A week later she went back to the hospital for a partially collapsed lung (atelectisis??sp?). We then stayed at UNC for 4 days. This time she came home with a pulseox machine and some oxygen for just in case. Unfortunately, another week later back to the hospital we went. This time she had caught the flu. We stayed and WakeMed for 8 days this time. It took a while to get her off of the oxygen. Poor thing icon sad It was a long month. After this stay we now have a cough assist machine. Hopefully all of these machines will help keep her out of the hospitals.
