Looking to go home

Well, Emily's just doing great. She is getting respiratory treatments every 4 hours and we are looking to go home by this weekend. We can take care of Q4 treatments at home and it can actually be easier on us to just get back into our routine. It will be SO nice to get back into our own bed, knowing that Emily is just down the hall with a nurse helping us out during the night.

I've been back at work this week and it is amazingly hard to concentrate on anything while I am there, but I'm doing the best I can. I don't know how other dad's do it.

Anyway - Emily's so happy. Yapping up a storm and talking to me about Dora the Explorer. It's been a lot of fun. If there can be a funnest part of being in the hospital it is when medical folks come in to see Emily b/c they "heard she was extubated." They've gotten to know us here and it is great to have physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists see Emily when she's not down and out on a breathing tube. They get to see that she's still a little beautiful girl full of life and things to do and see. :)

Peace <><

Glad to hear the great news. I hope you are home VERY soon and can be together again as a family.

By the way, I think your new smaspace is a wonderful idea. I can't wait till I can play around on it more.
