From Krissy

Hi!  I wanted to do a quick entry to let you all know that John is doing much better.  If he had no fever during the night, they are discharing him today.  That is providing they didn't find anything positive in his cultures that needs to be treated.

His fevers are finally starting to dissipate.  He is going to be sent home on an oral antibiotic, so he will no long need IV antibiotics.  He has been on two IV antibiotics in the hospital - Vancomycin and Cefepime. 

I feel bad that I even mentioned this hospitalization to you all as it did not turn out to be something serious.  I worried you after good news. 

I was concerned when he was first hospitalized, but am only relieved now. 

Hopefully John will be discharged tonight.  Just in time for the biggest snowstorm of the year!  Or what could be the biggest snow storm of the past twenty years, they say!  I hope it isn't that huge.  And I hope it doesn't last too long.  We should be stuck at Hope Lodge for a few days when John gets out of the hospital, because his release about coincides with when it is supposed too start snowing.  I am thankful that we have a safe place to stay.

So I will get back on tonight and let you know if he was discharged.

I also want to get back on today or tomorrow and write a little more on narcolepsy and answer a few of you all's questions.  

But for now I have to run over to the hospital to see what the doctors are saying about John. 

Okay, love you all, Krissy :)
