Just wanted to pop on and say we are home! She's ... OK. Not great, not horrid. Still having pain, still won't stand, and cries when she sits.

I'm so tired...that baby next to us cried most of the night. She woke up at like 2:00 am SCREAMING in pain. It was AWFUL!! I just wanted to go hold her! I even asked, if she could room with us. I did see what looked like her parents there around 10:00, and then when we went out around 1:00 they were gone. UGH UGH UGH

I had a child life specialist stop by, to help with the emotional aspects of standing, and general getting out of bed. She brought some fun toys, and it got Emma happier, but she very quickly, she figured out what we were up too. She's too smart for her own good.

Then we went out to the hallway, were there is a walkway, and you can look down to the 3rd floor. So the boys got there just in time to play too. They had a great time!

So we are home now, and she had a hard ride home. Whimpered most of the way. It's just yucky. And she won't eat. Keeps saying she's not hungry. *sigh*

She is moving around a bit better, in general. Like moving her legs, and laying on her side. I think it is gravity, at this point that is scaring her. I remember my first days. Gravity is NOT a girl's best friend, after surgery down there!

She is in good spirits. I'll keep you posted on the standing!!

Yea! I'm so glad you're home! Yea Emma! And yea you! Good luck getting the eating/walking/eating going. Maybe having Jack around will be inspiration for her :)
