Today was fantastic in two ways…
It was Sylvia’s birthday and secondly, Genique came home (perfect gift for a brave mum).
We still have to visit the hospital every second day to monitor her sodium levels but it’s just a simple finger prick blood test, one Genique knows very well and is fairly comfortable with.
It is still a long road, but we’ll take it on one step at a time.
Upon arrival today, Genique walked in and lay down on our sofa and said:
“I just LOVE our house”
I think she really missed her home and her happy place.
I aslo think she likes going to the toilet without someone giving her a bed pan.
I think she likes having long naps, without someone asking about sqeezy arm (blood pressure) or blood tests from her butterfly (implanted port).
I think she likes her mum’s food the best.
I think she likes having a bath, where she can soak and share it with her brother and sister and chat away about the day’s events or just being silly, more than having to be wiped with a cloth.
I think she likes her own bed, more than the one with rails.
I think she likes being loved…
