She was posing a little earlier this afternoon so I thought I would take advantage of the photo op. Isn't she getting chunky?!!! She is doing so fantastic! She has gained 2 pounds since we have been home already and has another weigh in tomorrow. AND look at those eyes! They have been focusing so much better since we left A2 just a few short weeks ago. She is also focusing in on things further away so all of this is extremely encouraging that her recovery is going well! WOOO HOOO! AMEN!
Yup. You can thank nurse Bethany for this bad habit! ha ha Too cute to not photograph!
The grin just melts my heart.......and her daddy's too. Lindsay is getting more "centered" with her sitting up like she was before transplant and her arrest. We also witnessed her getting on her knees. She is still working on the combo of the knees and pushing her body up with her arms. She'll get it soon I'm thinking. She has therapy once per week but we have been working quite a bit in between those visits.
Lindsay looks like such a big girl in this photo. Carlee's aunt Angela made this dress for her along with a few others. She even put zippers in the side in case she was still attached to machinery, she could still look as cute as ever. ;-) Angela, you are a clever one! As you can tell, being home is treating the Princess just fine. She is happy as ever and becoming herself again more and more everyday. She is getting stronger and is eating orally perfectly without the gagging and choking as she was doing pre-transplant. Her tacro and cell-cept levels have been a little low so we continue with the weekly blood draws until they are stable for a few weeks. I think they are off because she is growing so much now that she has that perfect new ticker! The downfall to the higher doses of meds is that she is stooling more and her bottom can get pretty tender. So far so good on staying on top of that. Her brothers are just loving having her home. They interact with her just great and she just love to watch them play. She received a doll (2 actually) from my grandparents and one of them giggles. Lindsay will look at it and giggle right with it. It is the cutest thing and I will try and video it and post. As you can tell, we are enjoying being home and getting into a routine. I think I have it down to where I like it and things are going smoothly now that Dr. appointments can be spread out more. We go back to Ann Arbor on August 18th for her first check up since discharge. This will be an all day event to do the once over on the princess to make sure everything is still a-ok. Please pray that that is the case. She is showing no signs what so ever of rejection and we are thankful. We pray everyday that it will be a good one and blessed that we have it with her. I have been long winded tonight so off to bed I go. More again soon~
