|Leaving the hospital and seeing the sun for the first time in weeks! |
(I'm including the time she was sick at home before the hospital and didn't go outside)
|Beautiful weather for a welcome home orange juice party.|
Anellah and I squeezed it out of fresh oranges from my aunt in California!
Last night began a process of helping Anellah get back to "normal" life. She slept in bed with me (Daniel was demoted to the couch) because we knew she would be waking up in the night. She had gotten in the habit of being woken up so frequently at night that eventually she would just stay awake for a few hours rather than going back to sleep. Last night there weren't any doctors or nurses around to "bother" her (her word choice) but she still woke up around 2:00am and had a hard time getting back to sleep until around 4:30am. But the fact that she stayed in bed and didn't get to watch TV was a change. I DID still allow a midnight snack though.
She ended up sleeping in until around 8:30 which is great!! When she got up I made her a special breakfast of green waffles (her color choice), fruit, syrup, and whipped cream. She devoured it and asked for more. She is getting so much closer to being "herself" now!

We are HOME!
Anellah is doing WELL!
We are BLESSED!
