Mirabel is feeling better.

We we're on the schedule for a chest tube insertion this morning but it's been canceled after looking at this morning's X-rays.
To give you an idea of what she's been dealing with, Mirabel has lost over 3lbs since we got here 36 hours ago, all from the area around her right lung (I know I said "left" in the other post but it turns out it was *my* left).
The plan now is to adjust her medication plan so we can go home (no IVs, obviously).
Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes, as always.

Although I'm really glad it didn't happen on her birthday (or, God forbid her birthday party) that's the only good thing I can say about being admitted to the hospital again.
Mirabel is okay but she does have another pleural effusion (fluid on her left lung), same as last time.
