We Are Home

So last night Bryn and I slept at the hospital. She did so awesome. She did end up having kind of a rough time for about 10 minutes before she went to bed though. Tyler was holding her before he left and she threw up all over him. His shirt was covered. I took her from him and tip her over to let her continue and it nailed Tyler's pants and shoes. Sorry Ty. :) The dr. said that the pain medicine and/or anesthesia made her throw up. She got it all over her and her IV cover. The nurse took her IV cover off to get her a new one. While Tyler was trying to take off her soiled jammies her IV came out and blood was squirting everywhere! The nurse got the bleeding to stop and Bryn had puke and blood all over her. Oh well. We got her cleaned up and changed and then Ty left. Bryn went to bed for me at 9pm and slept until 12am. The nurses had me wake her up to take her meds and check her vitals. She went straight back to sleep. She woke up at 2:30am and then about every hour after that until 5:30. She just groaned and I would give her her binky and rub her back and she was fine. She ate at 5:30. Dr. Rayan came up and looked at her at 6am. He said her hand looked perfect (or at least the way he wanted it to look this morning). He told me I could take her home. I just need to keep her inside where it is warm and keep the house warm too....high gas bills for the next month I guess :) But I brought her home and we were at home by about 7:30am. She is so happy to be home. So am I. Bryn is an amazing little girl and has been such a trooper through this whole situation. She is my hero!

I'm so glad to hear that you're home and doing well. I really thought you'd be at the hospital longer, but I'm so glad you're not-it's no fun!

Yaaayyyy! I'm so glad it all went so well. Keep her away from all kids! There is so much swine flu going around!

Oh wow, sounds a little crazy, but it's nice to see you are home, and that things are looking good.
