Going Home...at Long Last!
Today we received the welcome news that Ellie will be discharged from the hospital tonight! We're so excited to be finally taking her home. She has made great progress in physical therapy - today she played hopscotch even and practiced walking stairs! She still has to continue eating and drinking and taking some medication by mouth. Her temporary central line will be taken out today which means she gets to go home for the first time in 7 months with no tubes in her body! She will be able to take long full baths and play unencumbered...
Our plan - only as of yesterday - is now to try to go home to Florida for a week! We are trying to get a flight through the Corporate Angel Network - hopefully for Friday. We can't wait to see Ethan again... it's been too long.
Thank you all for your constant prayers and support during the long hard past month. We wouldn't have wanted to go through that without you all. We will still be posting some things - hopefully lots of pictures - over the next couple of weeks, but I don't think that I will be posting every day. (I guess I haven't really been doing that anyway of late.) Please know that right now if there is nothing new, it's probably a good thing. We will certainly let you know if anything major happens and we will try to keep some happy fun things posted along the way!
My next update will be from somewhere other than that hospital. :-)
