Linzhi is doing much better! Thank you Jesus!!! We are coming out of the heaviness of chasing her pain, we are now at the point of staying on top of it with Valium and Tylenol 3. Her last dose of morphine was given at 10:30pm last evening and we are now at 5pm the next day so I think we're finished with morphine!!!! It's a great drug to manage pain but we're so happy, she's past that point. We live an hour from the hospital, CJ and I have been here since surgery on Wednesday but now that we're staying a few days longer than we anticipated we have to be a little more creative in childcare for Madelyn and Rachel so tonight I will be heading home and CJ will stay and then Sunday night I will stay and Linzhi and I will come home together on Monday (Lord willing). I thought I would have the energy to post more frequently but that has not been the case at all! I looked in the mirror and had to double take! LOL.... This morning, I drove home to pick up my girls at home. Linzi was missing them so much and I certainly was too! I got fresh clothes, started some laundry, took the girls for a quick bit and then we were headed back up to Chicago. We are now awaiting a pizza from Giordano's and then the girls and I will head home to return tomorrow. Please forgive me is this post makes no sense...enjoy the pics!
Getting Linzhi up in her wheelchair for the second time...Still looking a little beat.
Getting ready to head to the Child Life center. Each kiddie got a barbie doll. :)
A close up of our beauties.
Coming back to the room from Child Life, Linzhi was pooped out.
Sleeping after her outing.
This picture is from Thursday when Miss Amanda and Miss Lia came for a nice long visit. Such a blessing to have wonderful friends! Miss Lia will be having surgery a week from Monday so Linzhi and I will be heading up to repay the visit. (they even see the same Drs.)
Enjoying a BIG sucker from Lia. :)
Miss Lia! A blessing from China.
