We are on the FLOOR!!!

Things are really happening today! She was able to get her central line out of her groin, all IV's were pulled, and all meds are oral! Yes! Her swelling is much better due to her lasix and aldactone diuretics and she has eaten more today than she had in a total of three days at home! Ahhhhhhhh.........We are now on the floor and....wait for it.......not in a private room? "WHAT?" you say? No more precautions for her! She is so far post transplant and has no crazy flying bugs so we get a room ate. Different I will say but we got paired in a room with a beautiful family with a daughter, Addison who is Lindsay's same age, who is just cute as can be! We are so, so happy!
Now, tomorrow they will draw more labs to again check her taco level. It was already down to 23 today from 53 yesterday! Awesome! You can totally tell that she is coming back to her normal. Such a great sight my friends! I will address the plan to figure out her gut issues but I have a feeling that all of this was started by a virus ( when she got the flu before Christmas) which led to her not eating as well, which led to dehydration, which led to her body not taking it anymore, which led to her tacro going berserk because she was dehydrated. We were VERY lucky that we didn't encounter more severe results because of that critically high level! She really should have been seizing with that level! Yikes! And so not cool! But, yet gain, our princess rules the roost and likes us too much to leave us. God is not ready to take her away. She is teaching us just too much. I hate that she is my teacher, but that is what I believe she is here to do. I am a much better person because of her. Thanking God for her everyday and that HE chose us as her parents! Here's to a successful tomorrow so we can blow this Popsicle stand!

Loved seeing that happy little princess today. She looks fantastic! I'm sure hoping you check her "taco" level... I'm sure that if it's too high, it'll only help in the pooping department ;)
Love to the whole family!
