Home Sweet Home 1-21

HomeSweetHome 1-21

Last night was our first night with a nurse in house.  It was nice to know there was someone with an eye on Kathryn all night.   I (Mom) don’t remember the last time I slept in my own bed even if it wasn’t all night.  A Mother never minds getting woke up to comfort her child.

Kathryn did walk with help all the way from her bedroom to the bathroom.  We really need to work on building her muscles back up.  She had another nice relaxing bath.  She was really enjoying it.  At the hospital you don’t get things like a nice warm bath.  Mom finally got a nice long shower too. 

We had a nurse during the day.  This gave Mom and Dad a chance to go get lunch together.  Richard stayed home with the nurse as we said Kathryn would never be without one of us here. 

Tomorrow will be our Christmas.   No big dinner because Kathryn can’t enjoy a meal of real food.  She was able to laugh a bit about me (Mom) spilling her food on her and everywhere.  We will do the stockings and presents.  I plan on having a great picture with the panda hats Kathryn (Panda) received as a gift.  It should be a wonderful day!
