When is moving day?

The answer to the post title is....who knows! Dr. Forbess came by for rounds this morning and said he wanted Addie on 3-5 days steady weight gain before she goes upstairs. She has gained weight 2 days in a row so we have a start. He mentioned that they were worried at the end of last week and this weekend that her shunt might be too large for her (her heart and respiratory rates were up a bit as well as her blood pressure) so they wanted to make sure she was growing into her shunt appropriately. Not going to lie, it is kind of frustrating not being able to move upstairs yet because it is one step closer to being out of here, but I would rather them be as precautionary as they are. I think Scott and I are both ready to have a somewhat normal life again. We both miss Ellie terribly and are just really ready to be out of this hospital! I sometimes forget that Addie just had major heart surgery 2 weeks ago today and we have only been here 3 weeks this Wednesday. They told us to expect 4-6 weeks when we were touring so we are well in that range. Addie is doing well, but I am reminded how serious and scary her heart defect is (mainly when Dr. Forbess comes by). I am also reminded that I still need to be praying hard for my baby girl. Take one day at a time has never meant more.

Addie doesn't seem to mind a couple more days on the 3rd Floor
