Monday Update


No big news today.

Other than the fact that we have set a discharge date and are working towards moonwalking out the door a week from today, (knock on wood).

Yes, December 11th.

Abby met with the pediatrician in Wellesley this AM and we are set with a runny nose/ immunization/developmental doctor to go along with the surgical team.

The scariest thing is that we have an appointment for next week to bring Ellie to the pediatrician OUTSIDE OF THE HOSPITAL!!!!!

Cross those fingers, cross those toes and remember that a setback could mean Valentine's Day.

Such is life with Gut Girl.

But all things are pointing towards fresh air and a very scary car ride next Monday. it almost makes up for the empty car ride when we left yale without a baby in April.

Wait. No it doesn't. That really sucked.

it is going to take a pallet to get all of our stuff out of there.....

Baby steps, Baby steps.

I have everything crossed and am sitting here at work teary eyed trying to tell people the story of this saga and they are all crying... You have thoughts and prayers and fingers and toes crossed for a car ride with a great little girl next monday!

Not sure that I like calling Ellie, "Gut Girl" but if it works for you!
I'm so excited that Monday may be the day that I'm trying not to think about it.

That sounds wonderful. Hooray! I'm sending good thoughts your way. Looking forward to moonwalking video on youtube. Will also accept moonwalking practice videos to tide us over. (The latest hit: Dancing with the Brogans)
