I'm sitting here in the hospital on day 4 with my daughter. Thank god for lap tops and the portal. Found out Thursday (The day before our camping trip for the Labor day weekend), that our daughters shortness of breath was not asthma, but a build up of fluid between her lung and rib cage, caused by scaring from her radiation treatment for her cancer. They drained 3 liters of fluid out during the last 4 days (and 3 nights). She was given the "all is good" from her CT scan on the 9th of August and was looking forward to staying at home alone with a friend while mom and dad went camping ( she is 16). Needless to say, she has been very angry and scared, tired of being unable to move around at all, because she is hooked to a pump. She had a chest x-ray last night and we are waiting for the doctor to look at it and say we can go home. We miss our beds and both our backs are hurting like heck from sleeping on these uncomfortable beds and couches. OK, I'm done whining and am greatfull we didn't let her talk us into leaving for our trip. She is a trooper and she really wants to get back to school after being unable to attend since last March.
