What to do in Denver

Well, a lot of people have asked me, "What do you do in Denver now that you are out of the hospital?"... well, ok, just one person asked me but I though it was a good question so here's the answer.

We clean, we give meds, we make sure Abby is drinking enough water and cook her meals... and try to tiptoe quietly (we had a visit from our downstairs neighbors) sorry ladies, I forgot that the wood floors might make it kind of loud below ;)

Here's a time-lapse of our cleaning the main room this afternoon. I knew having the girls around would be helpful! And yes, I did make Lily help clean even though it was her birthday. Double digits the big Ten-O. Happy birthday Lily, and thanks for the help!

Abby is doing pretty good, she had that allergic reaction in the clinic yesterday but Benadryl is a pretty magical substance and she can now move her mouth again. That was weird reaction. She's never had any other reactions like this before, but since the transplant she's had 2 reactions. I need to ask if for some reason Anna might be allergic to these drugs too since it's now kind of her immunity living inside of Abby. Crazy huh?!

Tonights agenda includes a cake (provided by Brent's Place), present opening, and lots of meds for Abby. Just a typical birthday celebration right? Well, it's typical for us anyway and we all are together for Lily's birthday. That, right there, is celebration enough!

Happy Birthday, Lily!!! Our kids remember their birthdays during that season with great fondness. It was truly a gift to be together! The cleaning list...that transported me right back. I still have ours because I'm weird like that. Grace, grace, grace!

And that video is AWESOME! Are those real flowers?!

Thanks Sam. The cake was awesome. And the flowers are fake, but still nice. Can't have any real plants for a year. Do you want to take care of some plants for a year? ;)

Sam knows about the live plant rule. I think she was testing us!😉

Ha! Yep, I was tasting you! I'm a terrible keeper of plants...it was actually a relief when I had a reason to throw all of ours out.
