Discharged from Hospital!

Emma has continued to do really well and has been discharged from the hospital and is now recovering at our hotel. We have had Doctors' visits here at the hotel, but more for friendly visits rather than necessity which is great. They (and us) are amazed how quickly Emma is recovering from all her complications; she is chatting heaps, laughing & smiling, walking well, sleeping at least 8 hrs at night and generally feeling really well, although she tires easily. We have had small daily expeditions to Emma's favourite store - which of course is the pet store (the mall is across the road from our hotel) where there are lots of baby Fred's.

So GREAT NEWS - we are planning our travel back to NZ which is so exciting, and fantastic to see Emma well on her road to recovery. We are hugely grateful to Dr. Cantu, he is truly a wonderful Doctor with great expertise in treating RSD patients. Also, we are very thankful for the great team of Dr's here who worked so hard for Emma - and she kept them on their toes for many weeks!!
We are also very thankful for the wonderful friends we have met here, especially Sarah (Mum to Jessica who is also an RSD sufferer), who has given us so much help & support to keep us going through these past difficult weeks.
