We just had to wait (and wait) on all of her discharge papers and medicine. That took a while. I know they have to cover all the bases, but once they tell you that you get to take your child home, you are kind of ready to hit the road. We watched some shows on the ipad.
Changed into our "street" clothes.
Leaving the hospital, I know how lucky we are. On so many levels. We were able to treat this condition. We are educated enough that we explored every avenue and made informed decisions about our daughter's care. We have a girl that loves big and has a charisma that pulls everyone in. Even with her curves and holes, she is the greatest gift and if given the choice, I would choose her again and again.
I know that some how we are meant to bring awareness to this condition and her scoliosis too. I just don't even know how to begin. I often feel like I'm missing the boat on spreading awareness of how these things impact her life and all of the warning signs parents should be looking for. It's a lot to digest. And where to begin.
But for now, I will just keep soaking Allyn and her sweet smile and request for snuggles in. Loving the many gifts our family has been given.
