Friday already???

I can't believe it's already Friday. The week has gone by so fast. Olivia is doing awesome and is loving being home! Everyday you can tell she is getting just a little bit more accostomed to the chaos in the Chatterton house!

Medically, she is doing really well. I did go up just a titch on her O2 level. She was working just a bit hard the other night, and that took care of it all. And, gee, I'm sure glad they put that mediport it (notice the sarcasm in my voice). The darn thing doesn't seem to work. They tried to access it on Tuesday morning with no blood return. No blood return Wednesday. And, guess what? No blood return Thursday. So, I had to trek over to the hospital and she had to get stuck again! I finally asked them to just leave the needle out until Monday and have the docs at St. Francis fix it. One bonus is that she doesn't have to have labs drawn tomorrow or Sunday, so she's on a little lab vacation! I wish she could understand that. She would be so excited!

She did visit the pediatrician today and she was so suprised with her growth. She's up to 26.35 pounds! Her little growth chart made quite a jump!

The kids are still so excited that she is home, too. Jack is always wanting to hold her and loves playing ball with her.

Brooklyn keeps informing me that Olivia is her baby. "Did you hear that, mama? My baby."

I thought it would be kind of fun to see what she thought of a sippy cup the other day. She thought she was about the coolest little thing you've ever seen. It took her a good half an hour to get about an ounce down, but she sure thought it was fun! Couldn't keep her eyes off it!

You don't think her eyes will stay like that, do you?
Tomorrow morning, Zac and his sister, Amy, are taking off with the Macomb St. Jude runners to Peoria. They leave at 4:00 am and arrive in Peoria around 5:30 pm. Be sure to say an extra prayer for all the runners to stay safe and stay cool!

Hi Chattertons!

I'm so glad Livvy is doing so well at home. The pictures are great to see. I miss seeing you all in the PICU, but not enough to have Livvy back as a patient -- make sure she knows that. :) Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
