She's coming home

Cami is still in Kaweah-Delta Hospital in Visalia but they are sending her home today! I guess she did fine through the night and they are waiting to get today's blood work back.

Brock is impressed with this hospital. He said her room is like a hotel. It has a table and chairs and a fridge in it and a place for the parents to sleep. So Brock and Erin were both able to stay with her all night. AND they were all given breakfast this morning.

Hospitals certainly have changed since the 80s when my 3rd son McKay was a regular guest at Valley Children's. We always stayed with him at night too but were only given a recliner, and ONLY if they had one available. They didn't want parents to stay so they did not accommodate us much at all. They tried to make us feel guilty about it so we would leave. That never worked with us. We were not going to leave our baby. When I would have to go home to shower and sleep at times, my mom or my sister would take my place. And it didn't matter if I was a nursing mom, they had rules about us not eating in his room.

Elora remains in Huntington Beach with Erin's parents. She went down with them on Wednesday. Too bad her mom and dad and sister can't join them there, as planned. But we are just happy they get to be out of the hospital!

That's good news. I didn't realize Valley Children's was so anti-parents. I'm glad this hospital was a good place to be.

Well it WAS anti-parents in the 80s. I don't think it is anymore.

I really feel for Erin, seizures are so scary! It is such a relief to hear that Cami is improving.

ps- Yeah in Panama hospitals you just get a padded plastic chair- NO reclining. They-re still in the dark ages.

Thanks for sharing the good news. We didn't know Elora was already with Erin's parents. That was fortuitous. One never knows what life will bring each day, does one? Love, Susan and Dad

We sure don't, and that is just what my mom use to say..."we never know what each day will bring"!
