Ruthie is home!!!!

We were discharged yesterday at noon and got home last night. It was amazing how Ruthie could relax once she was buckled in her carseat. She loves being home and last night she slept through the night and at 9:05 she is still sleeping. Skip woke up at 2:00 and 6:00 to give her medicine and she would take it and fall back to sleep. YIPEEEEE!!! Sweet Ruthie was exhausted, the last night in the hospital she slept 2 hours and cried for 5. Oh my it is hard not being able to console her. She wanted me to hold her standing up and physically I could only do it for short periods of time. At about 3 am they upped her pain medication and I think it is finally on target and she slept for a little over 3 hours!! I cannot wait for the children to come home. Olivia, Amelia, Quinn and Grant will all come home today. Ruthie will be thrilled!


  1. So glad she is home. I haven't been following blogs this summer, and finally catching up. Please keep us updated on her progress. Blessings

  2. Thinking of you all as little Ruthie adjust once again to life!!!! Hugs & prayers your way
    We leave sunday8/5 for Maia's surgery in Ohio! I am going alone!

    My name is Jenna. You are a brave courageous fighter. you are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, earthly angel,and you are a smilen hero. You are full of happiness, life, smiles, joy, fun,love, and spunk.

    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

    I wrote this poem
    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesn't matter what others say
    we are special anyway.
