Here's the scenario. It goes off, so I sit Wren up and coax her back to sleep, (this takes some doing- about 5 refrains of ABC's and a loop of the same Chinese Lullaby, Two Tigers, then I get back in bed...er...I mean the couch/makeshift bed, get comfortable as I can and close my eyes. BEEP! This went on all night, and has been for the past three.
It is difficult because she does so well during the day. Shana and I not so well. 8^) We are rotating shifts now so one of us can rest. Wren has progressed really really well. She is a tough little warrior, endured so much, taking the constant prodding, poking, weighing, medicine taking, and baths...well, she kinda likes the last one. But rest assured in her own words, ALL DONE. She is full up. Grabbing my keys and using the remote starter from the 15th floor-pointing and saying, "She-YA-YA car?".
That is the update basically, but I have some images to share about what we have been up to pass the time and in the midst of getting better.
We go for walks.
We love to eat noodles lovingly brought to us from Ms. Agnes, because the hospital food tastes like...well...hospital food.
We spent the Chinese Autumn Moon Festival here, but wonderful Ms. Jennifer brought us a moon cake. (Jennifer recently started her forever family in May!-she and Shana are in some sort of International Adoption Club and the first rule of International Adoption Club is that you DON'T TALK about International Adoption Club- seriously they have screen name handles and secret handshake, websites, blogs-everything. They serve your food, design your brochures, take care of your children...)
We showed the doctor whats what.
Found the playroom, and made some grub. Is it real food or hospital food? You be the judge.
Took some baths. Not as much fun when you can't splash or have your rubber duckies.
Best part was when our big sister came!!!!! Our room overlooks Fannin, and one day I called Shana and told her to take Wren to the window. Trinity stuck her hand out of the car and waved and she could see us from the 15th floor. I had her on speaker in the car and she just shrieked like I have never heard. It was the sweetest thing. She loves her Jie Jie very much!
Chilled out with some friends.
Played dress up,
and indulged ourselves with our greatest passion. (Mama Hi-Hi's)
Yep, she is something else, our little Wren.
