Movin' On Up

Movin' upstairs...bed and all!

It finally happened today...we actually moved upstairs to the 3rd floor! They are crazy busy around here and I guess they desperately needed the space for "really sick kids" downstairs in the PICU! We miss the extra nursing care, sleeping arrangements and comfort of knowing the staff...but being upstairs hopefully means we are one step closer to getting home.

Our move was quite uneventful...we are back in a corner room with NO it is pretty quiet. Kate has been in great spirits and has been awake, alert and playing all afternoon/evening. We even took a wagon ride and spent some time in the 3rd floor playroom...not much for a baby to play with...but still a new environment.

As far as eating...she hasn't thrown up all day! YEAH! She is doing great with the milk...she has been a little finicky with the baby foods and yogurt...but what she has taken she has kept down. We are really going to push to get her home tomorrow...we feel we are capable of pushing the liquids and will obviously get help again if we need it.

Andy and I are going to rough it in her room tonight...sharing the very small, hard couch! We are hoping it's only 1 night and we are both still pretty exhausted from our lack of sleep Tues night and SHOULD sleep. Love to all!
Kate sportin' a little bedhead!

How many toys does Kate have? SOOOO Many!!

Oh my goodness. I wished I had checked your blog sooner. We were in Indy Wednesday for a luncheon. It would have been a good time to come and see you guys...since we didn't have Lynzi. Looks like this was an easy fix! Hope you get to go home soon!
Love ya!

I'm sure the PICU staff is missing you too. We like keeping the cute ones! If I don't get to see you tonight, keep posting updates and pictures! I can never get enough. Hope you get to sleep in your own bed tonight!

I guess they didn't get our memo requesting that corner suite with the view! Sending good thoughts that you're soon 'homeward bound'!
