We came home last night. After Mia's IV came out they said we could just give her meds at home. So here we are. Her gums are unchanged and she is really weak. She lost some weight, but will hopefully be able to eat soon.
She is MUCH happier at home! She has five people to distract her from her misery.
Just wanted to report the news! We are home, we are HAPPY, we are taking it easy. I offered her literally fifteen different food options for lunch today... she refused them all!
We spent the day watching shows and getting down all of her fluids.
When we were leaving the hospital I had her in the stroller. As we walked down the hall she kept saying, "oh cool" and "wow." She was taking it all in. She was stuck in that room for so long... poor thing. When we walked in the door she had a big smile on her face and pointed at Sam and said, "baby!" He is kind of everyone's fav around here.
Ellie had created a freezer full of "treats" for Mia's homecoming. She also made a sign and gathered up some toys for her. The treats she made were paper cups with Carmel topping poured in them and then some with choc. chips and some with sprinkles. She had her apron on and was taking orders for either the chocolate chip treats or the sprinkles. I went with the choc chips. She is a crack up!
Jense also really missed Mia. He told me a couple times that he loved her and wished she was home with he and Ellie and Sam (all three). I love that my two oldest absolutely love their little sister.
Again, a big thanks for everyone who helped us this last week! We really appreciate it!
