Cross your fingers, Cross your toes
We have been told that today is the day. So knock on wood, cross your fingers, see a penny pick it up, do all that good luck stuff and hopefully we will be heading toward the door soon.
The view from Ellie's bed
Sorry about the last post, it was supposed to be video of Ellie riding a big wheel all around our floor. But try as we might we can't get it to load as anything other than a picture. Oh well, trust me it was good to see.
I was joking with one of the nurses that they should pay us to come in once a week and have Ellie ride her bike down the hall or race the big wheels around, just to show all the new parents how normal (sorry Gib, Typical) she is.
So now we start the wait. The discharge wait. We are very used to the fact that when they tell you that you will be discharged today, even though it doesn't seem like there is that much to do, it will take all day. If we are out by 2pm we will be doing really well.
This is Ellie's bed here at the hospital. She is very into the Fancy Nancy books and wanted her room here to be "fancy." She got a lot of help with balloons from her Aunt Beth, and her boyfriends Max and Christian. We also got to see some friends while we were here, Chase is here getting rid of a line infection and so we were lucky enough to be able to spend some time with him and his folks.
Well we're off for a few laps around the floor while Ellie and I wait for Gib to get here and for everything to fall in to place for us to get OUT A HERE!
