Today Hana was discharged from the hospital. We walked out the front of the hospital. We walked as far outside the hospital as Hana has been and then we just kept going (by then she was riding in the stroller). We walked all the way to the Ronald McDonald House, which is our new home. As you can probably imagine, it was loaded with emotion – happiness, gratitude, joy but also some sadness to be leaving the amazing team of people who had come to be like neighbors, co-workers, friends and family! There has also been a little stress and fear with the transition, like getting all the new medications exactly right and getting the room at the Ronald McDonald House ready and organized – it’s smaller than Hana’s hospital room and we actually need to store a lot more things in it! Hana has never seemed happier and more like a normal toddler! But she has also had a tough time transitioning to sleeping in a strange place and in a Pack ‘N Play and it was almost 11:30 before she fell asleep for the night. Because of that I’ll share more tomorrow! After 205 and a half days in the hospital we are ready to start a new adventure!
