I know it's been over a week since your last "Bean Blog" and for that I apologize! However, I am not sorry to say that the past week has been spent WONDERFULLY at home!!! We were released from Packard on Tuesday, one week before Christmas and words can't describe how good it was to walk through that front door after 17 days at the hospital. It would have been picturesque were it not for Lilee's "welcome home tantrum" that lasted from about 10 minutes before arrival to about 2 hours before bed time. Miss Grumpy Pants!
In the past week those "vocalizations" have been mixed with wonderful happy home time. Mimi (grandma) Krug came down and rescued Erin so she could get a real nap since Lilee hadn't been sleeping more than 10 minutes at a time for more than 2 days. One morning I wheeled her out into the living room, started the dryer and she slept solid for an hour and a half!!! I think we realized that she is now beginning to readjust from being in the hospital for almost half of her life. After nurses, doctors, cleaning crews, mom & dad, food deliveries, grandmas and grandpas and more coming into her room 24/7, the dead quiet of her new home has been more than she can bear!
The good news however is that with each day she adjusts a little more and settles in to her new routine. We’ve spent a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day between the Finch and Krug houses and have just had a much needed time of rest and family time. Thanks for still checking up on Lilee’s blog. I’m hoping, now that the major action has died down a bit, to be updating her page once a weekish to keep you up on all the latest “Bean News.” We love you all and hope you had (and are still having) a wonderful Christmas season with your families as we are! God bless and a Happy New Year!
C, E & the Christmas Bean!
