One Step Closer

They took out Abby's last chest tube this morning! The dressing has to stay on it until Sunday afternoon so we'll be here at least through the weekend. This chest tube was attached to a rather large box to collect fluid. We had to drag it around behind us every time we got out of bed and Abby was constantly getting tripped up by the tubes. Having it gone will make getting around so much easier! I'm really starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel now, but being back home with both kids isn't exactly going to be easy either.

After 3 weeks my mom is headed back to California. She did such a good job taking care of Anna during this time I know we couldn't have done it without her!
