Our doctor was willing to have Esther go home, but preferred Monday.Â He said that if they could arrange getting the feeding pump I'll be using at home here today, then we could go home tomorrow, but weekends just don't work that way.
So it looks like once we get ahold of the pump or arrange to meet the home pump providers (it is in Bellingham) then we can go home (after paper work of course).
I got to spend the day with Daryl today - what a treat - we didn't do much, but just enjoyed being together.
He told me about the great giraffes above the giraffe entrance (I hadn't noticed them:
I also finally got a photo of the great elephant sculptures just inside the giraffe entrance:
Daryl and I also went up to the neighborhood market in search of a car magazine.Â I called my sister-in-law as we left to see when she was coming to visit, and found out she was almost here - so she picked us up in front of the hospital (honestly it was like we planned it - we walked down to the street and she was like the third car to come by!), and we all went there.Â It was an impressive little market, but none of the car magazines had "rod" in the title, so that was a bust, but we did find several flavors of Lind Chocolates, so we grabbed a bunch and headed back to the hospital.
Here's a great pic of Aunt Denise getting to know Esther (she gets a frequent visitor award down her in Seattle, by the way, tied with my brother Mark!).
We tried to go see a movie, but couldn't find the theater fast enough, so we just walked through Bellevue Square and ate out at Red Robin - we shared a milkshake, a half serving of the deep fried cheese sticks, and we also split a terriaki burger - just enough for both of us!
Daryl also brought Esther's car seat along, so I can test to see how she does in it with her monitor on - finding the right position to keep her "happy" on the trip home!
That's all that happened this day!Â Hopefully, 48 hours from now, I'll be blogging from my home!
