This weekend’s trip was a success on all fronts. We took our PN show on the road, away from the comfort and familiarity of home and the security of the Route 9 to Children’s Parkway and came back without a hitch.
Making our trip even easier was the message from Ellie’s surgeon that we got when we asked him about going away for the weekend:
I have my cell phone on.
Any crisis and Maine Med is fine – I know the folks there.”
If that doesn’t make you feel bold, nothing will.
Apart from Ellie being exhausted and going to bed tonight at 6:45 she seems to be doing just fine. We will watch her very carefully for the next two or three days to make sure that her cousins didn’t give her a souvenir infection but it seems just fine for now. Sometimes it can take 72 hours for a bug to bloom in her. We felt her forehead a lot today. Lots of false alarms so far.
We are already thinking about the next opportunity to head north how we can make it even easier the next time around and what we need to do to stay for more than one night.
