I'm still in the process of adjusting to daylight savings time, so I had no problem staying up way too late chatting with the night shift nurses. It was super fun, and I can't wait to do it again soon. I do have to admit that I missed the boys at home. Being a divided family is no fun, and I'm so ready for Norah to be able to come home. The tunnel is a long one, but I know that there's a light at the end of it... which is more than a lot of other families can say.
In other news, Norah is has a colonization of gunky bacteria, which is sort of par for the course with a trach. She had about 24 hours with an IV but they switched her to a non-IV antibiotic. She just hates not having function of both hands. They are crucial to both playtime and comfort time. Oh! and I nearly forgot the BIG news - she cut her first tooth last night! I was so glad to be there for it, too.
Sweet cuddles with mama on the pull-out bed. Note the IV in her right hand and the drool-catching bib.
Wiped out from a fun, late night. I loved being able to glance over to my left any time in the night to see this lovely girl on the other side of the room with me.
The morning-after: a bathed, dressed, happy girl! No more IV!
This one was taken a couple days ago. How cute are those leggings? Norah enjoys time travel in her spare time and wanted me to tell you all that 1983 sends its regards.
