Home Sweet Home

Gracie's doing just fine -- back to her fussy, sleepy, hungry self : ) In fact, she recovered quite quickly. Here's a picture of her taken on the second night in the hosptial. (Well, it was actually 1 a.m., so not techincally nightime. )

As I mentioned before, Grace was a trooper through all the medical tests, including the spinal tap. She wimpered a bit, but wasn't relatively calm. We were so proud of our brave little girl. Then last night we took the band-aid off her arm (where her IV had been) and she let us know it was the worst thing she'd ever experienced.

We're going to take it easy this weekend and are hoping for very uneventful days and nights ... and some sleep : )

Kate - That is a great picture. Gracie looks like your Jay on this one.

Wow Kate, I thought my week was stressful. It puts my life into perspective, I think your week took the cake. So glad she is doing better and things are getting back to normal. And I'm sure Ella is glad too.

Hi Kate,
Welcome to parenthood! :) Never a dull moment. Grace is so adorable. Enjoy the rest of your time off.

Great to hear you're all home safe and sound! Grace looks like she's gritting her teeth and saying, "I can put up with this, but let's... get... home..." (if she had teeth, of course)

We also had an unexpected hospital admittance once for a few days - I know it ain't fun. Just so you know, you now get extra credit in the parenting gradebook.
