We're hooooommmmmme!!!!! I just couldn't be happier! We both got to sleep in our own beds and are just so glad to be with Daddy/DH and our dogs Sadie and Sula.
On the way home, VeeGee woke up from a deeeeep nap (btw, the snore is totally not as bad as I thought it would be, as I was prepared for) and just bawled and bawled because we hadn't brought "her" tool set from the hospital. She had gone down to Child Life Playroom and they allow the kiddos to bring any toy they want to their rooms - VeeGee picked a tool set (you go GIRL!!!!!!! - I was rather proud!). Anyhow, she was so inconsolable that we considered stopping at the next town's Wal-Mart to see if they had tool sets, but I decided to wait til we got back in Memphis to go to our locally owned (very cool) toy store
. They had one left and I asked them to hold it for us. She's in the den "fixing" things right now. Cute!
Now our challenge is to help her remember that she's back in panties!
Thanks everybody for following this thread and for your encouragement. I'll update elsewhere along the way with her progress relative to the surgery. I'd love to hear about Megan's progress too!!!
To other Vandy mama's, we'll be back in town in the next couple of weeks (can't remember the date) - if anyone wants to meet up for a picnic or something, that would be fun!
