So I was home for the last four days and was anxious to get back to the hospital to see Ella. I anticipated a big smile when I walked in the room, which I got, but it didn't begin to compare to look of excitement she had on her face when she saw her "friend poster" that I was finally able to bring in. Seriously she made the biggest "O" face and I am pretty sure she was jumping up and down in her bed. She loves looking at the pictures of all of her blog friends. While we were in between rounds, I got smart and had the poster board laminated so I could hang it down low so she could touch the pictures all she wants. I have a bunch more pictures that were hanging on the wall around the poster board last round that I am in the process of placing on a second poster board along with all of the new ones we have received. So soon she will have two of them to look at.
Here, I am not sure if she is kissing Addy or Max :)
OT wants us to give her some pureed food twice a day so here she is working with some applesauce. The stroller with the bear was sitting nearby so she pulled it up close and was feeding the bear too. It was so sweet!
Here she is taking a little bite
Maybe it's not so bad...either that or it is sour!!
We hade to take a ride down to xray because the PT asked the Dr. if we could get an xray of her hips and legs as she turns one leg out a little when she crawls and maybe a little when she walks. It is definitely easier to get things done while inpatient.
Since her ANC is over 500, she was able to go down the rehab center to do her PT. There are a lot more fun things to do down there that you can't do in our room.
Trying to climb up the slide
The little Princess requires two people to tend to her needs (putting her shoes and braces on...which we also received while inpatient)
Tea party anyone???
So many veggies to choose from.....
Playing with stickers on the mirror while practicing standing
Trying to walk on the treadmill
Maybe it is okay.....
NOPE....don't like it!!
"I am DONE!!!" See...Ella isn't ALWAYS smiling and happy.
Practicing walking on the stairs.
So, as you can see, today has been a funfilled day (for being in the hospital, I guess). Her ANC only dropped a few points since Wednesday....870 but her Hb has dropped down to 8.9 so we will probably be getting a RBC transfusion in the next day or so.
