Well, we got the heck out of Dodge this afternoon, and Annie is sound asleep in her OWN bed tonight. She isn't doing handstands yet, and is very weak after being in the hospital for 11 days, not counting the 3 right after Thanksgiving. So, it'll take her awhile to really be on top of her game. I'm exhausted, but very happy to be home again.

The docs think that it was probably a need for more hydrocortisone that was causing the nausea. Her dose has been increased significantly, and we'll just go with that for awhile to see how it works. She hasn't thrown up since Sunday night, but she's been a little nauseated in the evenings since then. If she starts spiraling down, we'll, of course, troop back to Children's where we know every nurse, doctor, therapist, security guard, Tully's barista...it's pathetic when people come back to work and say, "You're Still Here??" Pretty soon we'll have our own parking space.

Thanks for keeping us in your prayers. Annie needs to regain her strength, as well as continue to keep her food INside her tummy.

Thank You, Jesus, that she's in her own home. Thank You for a bit of normalcy. Continue to touch and heal her, I pray. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I am sooooo glad you are home....but I would not scoff at having your own parking space....if you do get one, let me in on the secret, I have to pay to park at Harborview. (But the view from the parking garage has a nice harbor view! ha!)
Here's to sleeping in your own bed!
Continuing love and prayers,

So glad to hear of a calm spell, and will pray that it continues - sailing you right on thru Christmas (to continue the Harborview picture :-). Tully's, eh? I think you should just start punching the time clock and getting paid. Whaddayathink?
