Laughing, Weeping, Living

Life happens. You laugh about it or cry about it, sometimes both.

Discharged!

on October 28, 2013

We brought Agnes home from the hospital today for the third time in her life. This time she was only in the hospital for 3 weeks, and she is coming home with exactly the same requirements as what she needed when she went in 3 weeks ago. We had asked to be discharged in the morning, and we were on the way to the elevator at 11:55am, so that was good. Of course Agnes was hysterical the whole way home; she had never really cared for riding in her car seat, and she was not happy to be back in it after a 3 week break! Otherwise, Agnes looks really good, she adjusted well to being home, she hasn’t thrown up once since we’ve been home which is already a great improvement over the last homecoming! We are going to get twelve hours of private duty nursing each day starting next week, hopefully. In the meantime we’ll have our usual 8 hours overnight. Agnes is going to receive the monthly vaccine for RSV, which is awesome. We are all pleased that she is home! Now some pictures:

It's been 3 weeks since she rode in a car seat!

    She is just precious! I can see a resemblance to Stephen!
    Is she awake smiling?

    I think she was half asleep. She was definitely smiling because she was happy and not because of gas or anything else!
