Carlene Hospital Discharge Update June 18, 2022

Carlene was discharged from the hospital this week. Her morale was declining rapidly, and discharge was a very important step to preserving her mental and emotional health. To make the discharge possible, she had to have another surgery to place a PICC line in her right arm to receive the antibiotics that are required to be administered 24 hours daily. Carlene is required to be on a 28-day antibiotic regimen to combat the serious blood infection that was a result of chemotherapy weakening her immune system.

This update gives an overview of all the procedures that are required to be performed daily at the hotel. It is a very candid video and a glimpse into the daily life of Carly. The antibiotics and supplies were an additional expense as outpatient prescriptions cannot be added to our hospital bill and are not covered under our current financial plan. As you all know, all of Carly's medical and living expenses are paid out of pocket by our family with no insurance reimbursement.
