Here's the latest on Kara whose Chinese name means orchid.
"Friday, 12noon, Kara will be taken by ambulance to the Pacific campus of CPMC for a one o'clock appointment to have a pic line put in. She has to be really still for this to be successful, so please visualize Kara being really calm, thinking about happy things, and the pic line going in very easily and smoothly!
She'll then be taken back to Californina Street to be discharged, and HOME she goes! She's feeling a little anxious about going home, but she'll be able to get more rest. She's going to need an IV infusion four times a day, so a nurse will be going over to train them with the IV. The surgeons want to keep her on the antibiotics via IV.
Although she is well enough to go home, she is "still a sick puppie"."
They are requesting people to sit with Kara during the day and "prayers for a smooth pic line procedure at 1pm, and a good transition going home."
What a relief!
