We made it home last night. Ellie was able to keep small bits of food down all day, so we were released. It was very nice to get home. My mom had cleaned up the mess we made leaving home in such a hurry, and even went the extra mile. There's nothing like coming home to clean dishes...clean laundry...clean bathroom...you name it, it was clean! Left to my own devices, this would never happen. We were able to just settle in and relax. We made a quick trip over to see Ethan, but left him at Stan and Pat's for another night. We weren't sure how the night would go with Ellie. We have found that with this round, if we keep the anti-nausea medication going every 8 hours for a couple of days, she can make it over the worst of it. So we set an alarm for 2:00, then were able to sleep in until the 10:00 dose. (Another good reason for leavning Ethan where he was for another night!) Ellie has already eaten a whole egg for breakfast. Today's goal is to keep food and drink going in very small, frequent doses as well as keeping the medication on a good schedule. And getting lots of rest...for both Ellie and Mommy. :-)
Thank you all for the sweet comments and your constant prayers and encouragement. We are thankful that we have another round behind us. Please pray that Ellie's recovery would be quick so that she can gain back weight before surgery. Thanks so much!
