I managed to run away with Sandi just after 10AM this morning. (yes, she was discharged, but I was about ready for her to go AWOL anyway)... The girls, especially Elyana, were very happy to see her when she got home. They all cuddled on the couch for a while.
After eating a small bowl of pureed chicken/vegetable soup, she's snuggled deep in a pile of pillows and blankets about now... Snug as a bug in a rug. I'm not even going to check on her before 7. Sleeeeep...
The rather insane experience of the past few days is behind us.
As proof that she's actually free, here's a picture as we were going into the store on the way home. She wanted to buy some protein drinks, and stuff like that, as she'll be on a liquid diet for a while. She's trying hard to smile... but she's actually in a fair bit of pain. She quit taking IV pain meds last night, not that she didn't really need them, but she knew they wouldn't let her go if she was still on IV meds. She's a tough cookie.
