Mei-Ling is home. The doctor was surprised at how well she was doing when he came in to see her this morning, so he removed her catheter. He had expected to leave it in until Friday. Her lab work came back perfect and Mei-Ling reached up for him to pick her up, and she waved bye-bye to him when he left the room. He calls her the little princess. When he came back in the late afternoon, he asked if Melanie and Casi would like to take her home ! What a joyous moment for everyone, except the nurses said they were all going to miss her so much. For all that she has been through, she has the sweetest personality and never seems to be fussy. And her smile just wins everyone over.
She is one happy baby to be in her own home. Amazingly, she has been crawling, and acts as if nothing happened to her. Last night right after she got back from surgery, she had some pain medication but nothing after that first dose. She will have her stitches out Tuesday if all goes well. What a little miracle this baby is and her quick recovery is testament to all the prayers offered up for her.
Just simply...a miracle. Thank you all so much for all the prayer on her behalf and for our family.
