Driving days done

Mommy and I got home from St. Louis this afternoon. We had a busy few days there, but it was fun too. We did have alot of car trips, so I'm glad we don't have to drive more for a couple days.

On Wednesday, we left Pop and Belle at home and Mommy and me went to St. Louis. First we went to Auntie Rachel's house and then went to get some dinner with her and Mr. Patrick. It was a fun dinner, but I didn't want to eat anything. Auntie Rachel tried to get me to eat some ice cream, and she sneaked it in on me! It was very cold but kind of good. Mr. Patrick told me some stuff he said I needed to know about life, and it's just our secret! I'm not telling!

After dinner, we went back to Auntie Rachel's and I took a nap on her because she was cuddly.

Then we got back in the car and drove down to Grandpa J's house. Grandma C was gone on her trip, but I got to see Grandpa J for a few minutes. It was my bedtime, so I couldn't play long.

On Thursday, Mommy and I went to see a new doctor, Dr. K. He was nice and his helpers were too. He said he could take this thing off my belly. Then we spent the day at Grandpa J's house by ourselves, because he left for a trip too. When it was almost dinner, we went up to the place where I got my glasses so they could help them fit better. Then we went to pick up Auntie Rachel to go shopping. She spoils me so good! She got me a whole bunch of new outfits and bows for my hair. Lots and lots!

After we finished shopping, we went to Auntie Skye and Uncle Jody's house for dinner. Mr. Patrick came too, so we all had a fun time and yummy food. Of course, I didn't eat anything, but they said it was good.

When it was time for bed, we went all the way back to Grandpa and Grandma's house to sleep.

Today we got up and packed up our things. Then we went back to the hospital. They took us back to the place we go alot, called the APC (ambulatory procedure center), and we got to see some nurses that we knew from other visits. They said I was so big!
They always put a thing on my toe to see how much oxygen I have. It has a cord on it, and those are my favorite! So I had some fun with that while we were waiting.

Mommy took me back to another room and then I fell asleep. When I woke up, we were going back to the first room and I felt sleepy. Mommy was there, and I found a big, fun tube to play with. This was only a few minutes after I woke up.

Here's how my belly looked before they got it, and then there's what it looks like now. All flat again! And it was SO easy! I didn't even cry or anything. Mommy and I are both very glad that we took care of this thing!

So after a busy few days, I was glad to be home in the comfy chair. And this is one of my new outfits, too...just in time for Valentine's Day!
