We're Home!!

So excited to be posting we were discharged this evening and are home!  Alex is outside playing with glow sticks and living it up on this Friday night.  Thanks again for all the love and prayers sent this week.

Getting closer to home

Our warrior princess is feeling happy and enjoyed her birthday yesterday.  The hospital even delivered her own personal birthday cake which she is now requesting to eat for breakfast this morning. She had a couple wagons rides around the hospital and enjoyed some fresh air outside. Her nana, grandma, daddy and Ryan (I mean Elsa...ha ha) brought food and gifts last night and spent time with the birthday girl.  Hard to believe she turned 6!!!  Alex continues to have good pain control and is on the fast track to recovery, as the doctors put it.  We should have her home in no time!

Birthday Girl

Alex had a great night and continues to do well.  If she keeps it up she may be able to go home this weekend.  Most important news of the day though, it's Alex's birthday!!!  

Thanks to Nana for the special balloon delivery and to Gracie the dog for the pet visit.

Our crazy visitor

Ryan entertained us tonight with her slime show

Surgery was a success

Alex is doing great and feeling no pain.  The surgeon was happy to share that there were no complications and everything went as planned.  We are relieved and feeling thankful she's doing so well and her pain is under control.  Thanks for all the prayers and messages.  It helps us get through the stressful times and it means a lot to us to hear from everyone.  

Rockin her recovery

Throw back post - 6 years ago today

"It's been a long 9 mos and we're finally ready to meet our baby girl. Right now we're enjoying a blissful dinner at one of our favorite spots before starting the journey of parenthood. Hard to believe we're less than 15 hrs from one of the happiest moments of our life.

And just look how great Nicole still looks."

Off to see the wizard

Game Time

Alex has a surgery at Children's today and will be admitted for about a week while she recovers.  We are in the pre-op area getting ready.  Say a prayer everything goes well without complication.  No matter how many surgeries or procedures Alex has, it never gets easier.
