First Night Home

So last night was kind of rough. Mariska would wake around the same times people would make her cry all week!! She didn't eat very well either. I cleaned out her nose and now shes doing a lot better.

She only ate two full bottles the rest she just nibbled on. 1/2 to 1 oz. A little frustrating. She gets a little fussy when its time for her Tylenol but other then that shes been pretty happy and back to being a little stinker. It's surprising how well shes acting and playing so soon after surgery. It blows my mind.

Hurray for poop. Sorry. I think Mariska was saving allll of it for us here at home. lol. I'm happy her little system is getting back to normal.

Mariska had three really nice and long naps. We were glad she was finally getting some much needed rest. Rest little Misky Rest...

Sorry it took me so long to post an update. Things were very busy.

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers. We have felt them.


Mariska, Melynda, and Sam

I am so glad that things went well and that you are now home. Isn't it amazing how much better they look after that 2nd surgery? Anyway, I hope that your recovery (isn't it a family event?) continues to go smoothly. Take care.

Hello you guys! I am so happy everything went as planned (close enough ~~ We wish that we could have stayed longer to visit before returning back to Chicago) and you are all home safe and sound.

Just to let you know, that I saved your website as one of my homepages, so I will be reading it EVERY time I get onto the internet.

It is nice to be able to read and get updates to see how you all are doing there.

Love you lots.

I am hoping that things are going okay since you have been home. I know it's hard to get back into a routine after spending time at PCMC because of all the noise and proding that happens.
Keeping you family in my thougths and prayers.
