Mia cooing with her papa the morning after surgery - our happy little one just couldn't help herself!
IV line got taken out. I thought she would have a hard time with it, but it didn't phase her at all.
Tia Bertha, mama, papa and Mia - ready to head home - yay!
Packed up and ready to head home - and out like a light for the whole three hour trip!
The next time you see a Shriner, would you mind thanking them for us and for all of the children and families they help? I'll never see the little tasseled cap gentlemen the same way again and have a new found respect for them an the organization they belong to!
The Rose Story
Zeus's mom Lina loved roses, so for her birthday this past May I bought a rose bush for our house in her memory and we named it RosaLina. We still have not transplanted it and it's almost died many times and hasn't bloomed at all since we got it. Well, when we got home, Zeus saw that our rose bush had sprouted a beautiful red rose. We decided it was a beautiful little sign from Zeus's mom that she was watching over Mia during surgery and that everything was going to be okay.

It was SO good to be back in our own little home!
Mia chilled and napped in her swing...
...and read some stories with papa.Mia must have recognized that we were back in our own little house because her appetite kicked back in (for the most part) and she's slept 10 hours straight again since we've been home. We continued the pain meds through until bedtime. They had prescribed liquid Lortab for her, which is what she was on in the hospital. We were going to give it to her through the night if she woke up a lot and needed it, but she didn't wake up so we didn't end up giving her any more. Does this mean we are almost out of the woods on our way to recovery? We sure hope so!
