Samantha is in the hospital, however I cannot update blogspot from the hospital, they have it blocked on their network. Anyone that would like to follow updates while she is hospitalized please go to and put in page name SamanthaFross.


Off to ER for admit

I just called Samantha's doctors because she woke feeling horrible this morning so we are off to the ER for admit. I will update later tonight as to what they say.

The Antibiotics

So, Samantha started her antibiotics last night, but guess what, her cough is still increasing. She has only had two doses of the antibiotics so hopefully with a few more doses she will start sounding and feeling better. She is taking advantage of the rainy weather we are having and sleeping/resting quite a bit, so that should help as well.
As things change one way or another I will let yall know.

Thanks for checking the Angel

Call to the Dr.

So I called the doctor today because Samantha's cough wasn't getting any better. She last cultured enterobacter which is resistant to Cippro, so I will go to the pharmacy tonight to pick up her prescription. Let's hope this knocks out the yuckies, so she will feel better.

Trying to Stay Out of Hospital

Samantha has developed a nice little cough. Breathing treatments are being given every 4-6 hours trying to keep this under control and trying to stay out of the doctors office and hospital. She has been doing relatively good, she has been off of IVs for right at 6 weeks so I am hoping she is not going to continue the 6 week thing...I am really waiting on the time when she can consistently go 6 weeks without IVs.
I will update if/when anything changes.

Samantha's weight is slowly beginning to creep back on finally. She has a little bit of a cough going on but she is holding her on and doing pretty good. She goes back to the doctor the first week of September as long as she stays healthy and holds her own between now and then.

My car

I finally got my car back yesterday and the a/c works very nicely. It is so nice to get in my car and be able to keep the windows rolled up and ride down the road in comfort.
Samantha seems to be holding her own as well.
I will update if there is anything else to report.

Nutrition Visit

I have to make a tweak here and there in Samantha's feeds, but overall everything stays the same and we follow up in September to see what happens next.
On their scales Samantha gained 3.2 ounces in a month. Not bad but not good either being that she has lost on my scales.
