Last weekend we had a picnic outside on the hospital grounds.
Even daddy is having a hard time keeping his eyes open!
As you can see Faith is not a big fan of the great outdoors (she's getting better..) and yes she has sunglasses- she can only tolerate them for so long.
Her favorite toys helped her feel at home!
Safe and sound back in my home away from home.
Yikes! We know it's been a while..our apologies. We no longer have a home computer so it has been difficult to blog! Nothing big or new to report. Faith is doing great. When the weather is nice we are able to take Faith outside (which you never know in this state...when we had our picnic on Saturday it was 75 degrees...less then 24 hours later we had 6 inches of snow at our house!) Nevertheless we are very grateful to the hospital for allowing us to do this because she is in isolation. It's also good for us- not only because it gives us a chance to get some fresh air but it gives us a sense of independence. I (Jen) even took her out by myself yesterday..another step in the right direction. We are still aiming to go home in early June....sooner if nursing comes together (which we all know how that goes) we believe that we will go home when it is meant to be. Interestingly the last time we went home I remember sitting on the couch with Brian and Faith and he kept saying.."I feel like we are doing something wrong..." we both brushed that off thinking that it was because we had spent the previous 6 months in the NICU, but as it turns out we were doing something wrong- we weren't meant to be home at that time. When we think of all the people we have met at Children's it crazy to think that if we had never come here we wouldn't have met them. We know we would not be the same people we are today if this were true. Ok so I know I am rambling again. We'll do the best we can to keep you updated!
Brian and Jen :)
