Day 9...Even closer...

Carla's chest x-ray looked good again this morning and the doctors are taking all the steps necessary to send us home! We are going to get another echo either today or tomorrow morning, chest x-ray in the morning, they have taught me how to give the lovenox (shot) and so I have done that twice now...NOT FUN! Another doctor is trying to set up for a home health nurse to come to our house and draw the labs Carla will need over the weekend. We hope to only be on the lovenox thru the weekend and then just down to the coumadin, enalapril, lasix and aldacdone. They are talking about releasing us tomorrow!! I can't believe it. We will be released on the anniversary date of Carla's fontan last year....weird.
