When she woke up she greeted me with monkey noises and lifted the shade to check on her swings. We spent a long time out there this afternoon.
Abby and I have gotten to the point that we more or less draw straws to see who gets to stay at the hospital instead of going home. we both sleep better there than at home in an empty house so a night with the familiar sounds of the pumps is like a sick and weird lullaby. Sort of like parolees who can't sleep without the noise of prison. last nigth I was at Children's and slept very well. Abby is recovering from a night at home and a week of excitement and may take a few days to get back on course.
Gus is by far the easiest one to get back in the groove. A few games of fetch, some treats and a nap on the couch with Abby and he is ready to roll. Best Dog Ever (if you don't count the eating issues....).
So we are home and getting unpacked and getting everything cleaned after being in the hospital. Everything will get washed whether we used it or not and we will be back in gear for tomorrow.
Ellie is a very happy girl and is sound asleep in her own bed. She almost put herself to sleep tonight while Abby set up TPN and was curled up with a blanket and a doll when it was time to hook her up to her new high volume TPN bag that has an extra 500 ml of fluid but only another 130 calories.
Nothing like the home court advantage.
