Out of there!

Pin It Today was a glorious day! We were discharged around 1pm and the whole day was ours!
Ivy was very a little scared and weary of what on earth was happening next but she was clearly excited to break free of this place!
We headed to our hotel to drop off our things. She was not too sure about that! I assured her this place was good since there were fries in the galleria attached and she was all over her fear!
We had a fry party in the room and just played together in the room and out on walks in the stroller all day. She skipped nap and stayed up until 8:30pm.
She is happy, smiling and laughing and eating up a storm. She had pasta with Alfredo sauce and a baked potato for dinner. I thought she was going to explode she ate so much! 
Tomorrow we start our day with lab work at 8am. They would not let us leave with her picc so she will get poked tomorrow :(
We see Dr. Marx at outpatient clinic later in the morning. We will head back to Arizona later tomorrow. No idea what time yet but I will try to post tomorrow along with some goodbye Boston pictures!
Love to all of you.
Thank you for praying us through this adventure!
God has blessed us with the most amazing little girl and we are so honored!!!

 Ivy's new favorite snack. She ate 3 of these yesterday and 3 today and asked for one tonight (number 4!) She loves croissants!!!

               Leaving the hospital!!!!! Extra food in hand as usual! 
 I took her  right to her favorite french fry spot and she was so excited while waiting for those hot little numbers :)
 And I tried to get her to try the new fish bites...... uh, ya, not going for that! Can't say I blame her either! 

 After an early dinner we were blessed by a visit from Ivy's sweet friend Maggie!!! They were so cute hugging and kissing and sharing raisins! What a gift it has been for me to watch Ivy glow all day long!

Yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay, yay!!

So thrilled for you guys! What a tremendous answer to prayer!

And holy cow to all the food she's inhaling! My doctors would be thrilled if I could get down even a fraction of those calories - although (admittedly) McDonald's fries are one of the few things appealing to me (my nephrologist was trying to get me to add salt substitute to add more potassium to them - oi vey - yeah right!) and I never eat those normally! Your pictures and chronicles of her food make me laugh!

Bummer about not getting to keep her PICC and having to get poked tomorrow - praying for a nurse who's a good stick on the first time and for an uneventful trip home.

So excited for what God has in store as your family gets to be all under one roof and with Ivy feeling so much better!

Continuing to pray!

Wonderful news! I didn't get in today until after you had left. Sorry I missed you on this trip but I'm so thankful things have gone so well and that you and Ivy get to go back home to your beautiful family. Are you flying from Hanscom again? Wishing you a safe, uneventful flight and all the best when you return home.

So happy to hear the good news! And by the way who doesn't love croissants in all their butterly flaky goodness? Only I can't eat 3 of them in a day without starting to be like Alice in Wonderland when she starts to grow so big that she bursts out of the house. But Ivy - you go girl and eat all those croissants that I can't! Love MK
