Being home is wonderful, but oh so difficult. Gracie loves being home but she is still having a hard time, she sleeps a lot but is awoken easily due to all the secreations in her throat and nose--all I have to do is turn the suction on and she freaks out. We were sent home on an ativan and methadone wean and well Gracie is despising every minute of it, why do the doctors at Primary's always want to rush the weaning process? Luckily our doctor is willing to extend the wean to help Gracie so we don't stress her out too much because we all know how much she loves her 'drugs.'

Home and loving it
When the day finally came that we got to bring Gracie home, I wanted it to be a surprise for Morgan, so we didn't tell her and got Gracie all settled and then brought Morgan home from Grandma's. This video is Morgan's reaction, its almost two minutes long, but I don't have the time or the energy to edit right now...sorry.
The hardest part about having Grace home has been the nights, she wakes up easily and when she isn't waking up she has meds due, I'm hoping now that we have finished her IV antibiotics things will get easier and the nights will be better--at least I won't be up for an hour at 4am giving her the IV.
But as much as I can complain, we are so happy to have Gracie home and be able to do normal things. Today, Morgan, Gracie and I all played tea party, we went for a walk and read books and just enjoy being together. Morgan and I almost had Gracie giggling today---our homework for this week is to get it to slip out.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past few days.
