Guess what?

We're home!!!! Olivia and I came back to Macomb around 4:00 this afternoon. She obviously had a good night and ate well this morning! It did take some persuasion on our part. They wanted us to stay one more night, but I personally didn't see a reason for that. We did have to come home withher PICC line still in (the long term IV access) "just in case." So, I'll get to play nurse for the next couple of days to keep that from clotting.
Anyway, I left my camera in Dunlap, so I don't have any pictures, but this is a totally different child! She is so happy to be home and see her brother and sister. She is rolling around all over the place. She has totally forgotten how to sit up, but I'm sure it won't take long to get that back. She remembers how to crawl, but isn't quite strong enough.
It takes me a good 10-15 minutes to get a bottle ready for her now. She gets some sort of medication every 3 hours (which I put in her bottle). We went in to the hospital on 5 medications and we've come home on 13. It's going to take some serious time to get used to the new ones. Hopefully they are short term.
Anyway, just wanted to drop a quick line to let everyone know the good news. I'll update more tomorrow!
