Heading Home

Hip Hip Hooray!! My baby's going home today!
She has been off oxygen for over 12 hours now. They will let her go home in hopefully another 4 hours.
I am so anxious to have all my family under one roof again!

If you want to hear Hayden's story from her perspective, here you go:

At Carter's story time we sing a song about shaking your sillies out. In this video Hayden is shaking her sickies out. And yes, she is still in the PICU in this video. Doesn't she seem just like a baby you would expect to see in an ICU!?! Granted, she looked a whole lot different a few days before.

Because she was so energetic, we had staff coming in and out of her room all day long to play with her. She would always reward them with her smiles and coos. I think she was a therapeutic relief to everyone who was used to dealing with such sickly children all day.

And she likes hanging out in her underwear, just like her dad.

Glad you are home and she is doing better! Hope all the hospital trips are done.
