Recap of the Weekend in the Hospital

Monday, October 27, 2008

I took a lot of pictures over the weekend. That's what happens when I'm stuck in a small room with a camera.

Here's a few.
**Gifts from baby Ashalyn.**













**Doped up on some heavy drugs to prepare Cayman for taking the chest tube out.**

**the chest tube**

**Taking the chest tube out. She was very calm and did not feel much because of the drugs they gave her.**

**Passing the time.**











**the ultrasound technician had his office decked out with Ohio State stuff.**

**This was the apparatus they put Cayman in to do a chest x-ray. She's actually standing up, being held only by the straps and banana seat her bottom is sitting on.**

**Bye-bye hospital.**

Cayman looks very cute sitting on the window waiting to leave the hospital! Her smile sure is sweet as well. Who rigs up the toys hanging above her? I wondered if the hospital did that. I pray for her every day and I am so impressed by the strength of your little girl!

She does NOT look amused with that chest x-ray thing. ha ha
I love the picture of her looking out the window. So cute!

Angela said...

Ack! Smoosh her cheekies with kisses! Now! From me! (obviously)

Now, wrap your arms around yourself really tight and squeeze! Hug from me! (obviously)

Toss a pillow at Mike's head! Yeah, we'll just leave it at that. He still has a few more coming. For the grape to the eye. My eye that is. (obviously)

Sidenote: I had that exact same kitty when I was little, except mine was white and not pink. I named her Princess. What? Don't judge. You always wanted to name your barbie Crystal.

So excited to be leaving! Seems her hospital visit went very well. Glad it only lasted a few days. She is looking hale and hearty, praying she'll stay that way.

In the picture where she is looking out the window I think she is saying '"Look out Grandmas I;m coming home!"
