Bonding is a full time commitment this the lack of blog posts. Up until this morning she has not let me put her down. If I was worried about flabby arms before China, that has been addressed the last three weeks!!! ;) The more they are held mostly cheek to cheek, the more secure the bond builds.
The night was hard because we missed dinner due to jetlag then up at 1:30 am... not to mention the blood draw @ 4am. :( I was SO glad when the sun peeked up over the horizon~ I could see the end of the tunnel or so I thought. The MRI was pushed out to 11:30 then 2:30. I think she finally went back about 4:30 and by then we were both spent. It really was the first time she hadn't been in my arms for two weeks. I went to get food and sat in the garden praying for her. We needed answers!
I headed back to waiting area and because it was about 6pm, I COULD NOT stay awake. I kept falling asleep in my chair almost falling out. haha. I was able to go to her about 6:15 and carry her back to our room not long after. We ordered dinner and went to sleep in each other's arms.
We were SO happy to see dada walk in our room about 6am the next morning. And it was heaven to see CA eating again. She ate and ate and ate!!! We were able to let her walk around the halls while waiting for word we could go home!
Egleston was a tough call for us so soon home but it was certainly good for bonding. We were one on one and I was able to meet every need. We were so blessed with amazing nurses~ LaRobbie being our all time FAV!!! We were released about 2 and headed home!!!
