E Report, Coming Up Out of the Trenches, and Good News for the Muse

E's finally on the mend. She's not yet back at school, but we're giving certain meds less often, and I can actually envision sitting down with KM today instead of crawling under the covers when E takes her nap.

By the way, we ended up starting steroids over the weekend. As much as I hesitated doing so, it was the right decision. Within 12 hours we noticed a difference. E was still coughing, but the cough had changed, sounding less labored, more productive.

E still has a ways to go before she can return to school, but we're headed in the right direction, thank God.
