Friends

Hey everyone.....we are finally at the RMDH.

Last night was wonderful. Riley and I slept through the whole night for the first time since we started this journey.

Riley took and nice long bath last night. It must have felt good because she didn't want to get out.

At dinner last night we met up with 2 other Chiari friends. Kristen, and Michelle, both found me through my blog.
Michelle's (from Indiana) little guy, Gabe, is having a shunt replacement today with Dr. Frim, and Kristen's (Oklahoma) little guy is seeing Frim for the first time on Thursday, but is having his MRI and other stuff done today.
Sort of funny how we are all here at the same time.
We had a great time chatting, and the kids had a great time playing. Best wishes to both of them!!

Papa is coming down today, tomorrow we will see Frim for a post op appointment, and then we will be free to leave!!! Riley is really excited to get home. She has been talking about the 3 others, but mainly, Jake.

I am sorry I haven't gotten pictures posted lately.....Since Matt has been gone, I have been lost. I will do a HUGE picture post when I get home.

Glad you had time visiting with others. There's nothing like being able to connect with someone going through the same journey. Glad to have found you too. :) I agree with KO ~ Hope the two of you are able to enjoy some girl time now that things are more behind you and you've been released! talk soon ~ Kaci & crew

Wow, I know it probably doesn't seem like it to you - but it seems SO fast to me. I'm so amazed you'll be coming home this week after such major surgery!!!

YAY!!!!

I'm so glad things are going well now. Anxious to hear how the meeting went with the patient advocate.

I saw your mom & dad yesterday at a red light ... couldn't talk though due to her window issues!

My mom sent a package yesterday to the RMH ... I hope it gets to you before you leave!! Will they forward it if you don't???
