Home Again

After three nights in the hospital, Addison was released on Friday to come home!! They did two fast act MRIs while we were in the hospital to check that the brain tissue was responding to the external drain and the internal pressure adjustment. So far, so good. We have a follow up appointment with Dr. George, our neurosurgeon, on August 3rd.

While we were in the hospital, Addie turned 2 mths old !!

It's amazing how much more I appreciate lazy home days after spending a few nights in the hospital. I actually slept surprisingly well while we were in the hospital. But it's reassuring to know she's hooked up to a machine that would beep if she stopped breathing! We were able to relax quite a bit since Addie was sleeping so much as the anethesia wore off.

Thankfully, Adam was able to stay with us two of the three nights before he had to return to work.

Melissa was able to drive up to Dell Children's Friday in our vehicle with Addie's carseat in it to pick us up. Mom stayed a few extra nights after we got home. I was able to get some laundry done, and closets rearranged in prepartion for school resuming soon.

Addie has been a little fussy on and off and is still pretty sleepy. I don't know how much of this is related to her ordeal last week or just her age or what. I'm looking foward to her having more wakeful aware times.

We have a busy next few weeks planned. Dalton and Chase are here for a vist for a few days, then Jared is coming at the end of the week. Melissa is swapping Jared out for Raychel this weekend and Raychel will be spending all of next week. Hoping Raychel will come with Addie and I to her neuro appointment.

The week after Raychel leaves is blissfully unscheduled (as of now) and then we leave for Duke for Addie's stem cells on August 13th.

Home for another week and then school starts back August 23rd. CRAZY!!
