Party Hat!

Well, It's not time to celebrate our release just yet but we tried to make the best of it this weekend in the ICU. This is Lilee with a make-shift "Queen Party Hat!" Isn't she cute? She looks even better today (Monday) as we've been able to take her off of her oxygen, take those tubes out of her nose and stickers off of her cheeks. She did NOT like that part! :o) (This morning's picture is below.)

She also got another EKG this morning and a visit from a physical therapist. Can you have a physical therapist when you can even sit up on your own? Oh well, it's a full service operation around here, Iguess. Her college counselor is supposed to come by later followed by her investment advisor! Just kidding but I wouldn't be surprised! :o)

The rumor on the 3rd floor is that our "magic day" will hopefully be tomorrow or Wednesday. They want to make sure she is still eating regularly and gaining weight. I tried to assure the staff that "weight gain" was a family tradition and that I'm sure she'd carry the baton with pride but they didn't seem to share my optimism! Oh well, we'll just have to prove it to them! Hope to have some more good news soon. Hope you're enjoying the biggest Post Office day of the year. Talk to you soon,
Chris, Erin and the "gettin' fatter bean"

That was a good laugh Chris. Lilee doesn't look to happy with that thing on her head. She's kinda like..."okay guy's jokes over." Love the picture of Erin holding her....finally huh!! Love you guys!!

She'd look more stately with a John Deere hat instead of that make-shift "crown"... I will make sure she is properly attired with the Yellow and Green!
