Emma finally drank! These are from Thursday morning. My lovely chair/bed and Emma's hospital crib.
After coming home, K and Bria had a snack in the playroom while watching a movie
Hiding from Mommy-- Don't take my picture!
These envelopes... They were ALL filled with hospital bills from Micah and Emma's congruent hospital stays in April. What a joy to come home to!
While I was gone my mom watched the kids one morning and after using the restroom (yes, mommies do that too, and even Grandmothers!) she couldn't get back out! The doorknob has been giving us trouble the past few weeks and apparently that was its undoing! She couldn't get out! Luckily that bathroom also opens to the pool deck and Mike had left the front door unlocked... so she got back in through the front door and the kids were all still asleep this entire time. So... there's Mike installing a new doorknob :)
Here's what Emma's hand looked like right after coming home. Notice that the hospital band now left its own little mark too :(
Clean and smiling... but only the GIRL... THE ROOM WAS A MESS! LOL
K playing on his top bunk and Emma all hooked up last night. Notice the socks on the hands and on one foot to keep the pulse-ox on.
I also taped a long piece of it with paper tape to keep it in place. Unfortunately, this morning we discovered that Emma's face is much more sensitive to tape than her hands are... There's a little area where she has an actual scrape looking thing on her face and then the inevitable red rash from the tape too. She DID, however, keep in the oxygen all night!! She slept through everything, actually. It was Brianna and Kristopher that took their turns waking up. And it's not Emma's fault that Mommy doesn't know how to turn on a light switch to make the outlet work!
Tonight I made a no-bake dessert that has a chocolate crust, peanut butter middle, and a chocolate topping. YUM. I'd bought it to make for Mike's birthday, but considering the circumstances, didn't make it until today. We also had a picnic ham and steamed broccoli, and of course applesauce to top it all off :) YUMMY!
