Back Home

K, Papa and I returned home yesterday to a warm welcome from the irises blooming in the garden. What a nice surprise...

Even though her eye isn't perfect yet, the doctor felt she was well enough to go home as long as we followed up with him today in St. Ignace. St Ignace is just north of the bridge, so we'll hop on the ferry, see the doctor, and pop into one of my favorite thrift shops afterward for a quick peruse.

For the next week or two K has to take an oral antibiotic three times a day. She also is taking Zantac to help her tummy deal with the antibiotic. Even though she is going to have to take it easy this summer due to the mono, she is thrilled to be home. When we were in the hospital she actually asked, "Can we go home Mama? I want my own bed." Me too honey, me too. We both slept like rocks last night.

Thank you so much for all the thoughts, prayers, and kind words. I don't have time right now to reply to each of you individually, but know that your thoughtfulness helped brighten my days at the hospital.

Continued healing to your daughter. Sending her hugs. Do you drive over the bridge very much? It took almost fifty years before I could even look up when we drove on it. LOL

Christy said...

So glad to hear you're all back home. Don't forget to take care of yourself while you're taking care of K.

The Iris is beautiful!

SO glad you're home and she's doing well - take good care of both of you! And I for one certainly don't expect a reply, I think you have enough going on!

Hopefully the rest of the summer will be uneventful and relaxing for you. I understand, when your babies are hurting, you wish you could do it for them! Best wishes for a peaceful summer!

Good to hear you're all home and little K is healing. Hope that's the only drama you will have to deal with this summer!

Oh, I was just catching up and saddened to see you've been having such a time. It's so hard when little people are sick. I'm glad you are back home and catching up on some much needed rest.

I’m catching up reading your posts. I’m sory to hear about your daughter’s eye infection.
I’m glad you’re back home now.

What a wonderful gesture of the hospital to give little ill kids who are admitted a quilt.

I hope your little girl will be on the mend!!

Back again! I am thinking I may move your blog from the craft category on the blog roll to the photography category. Really a beautiful iris shot.

Just catching up here...and I'm so glad to hear that your daughter's eye is healing and that all is going to be fine. I know eye infections can quickly become other kinds of infections. Enjoy a slow paced week together!
