There's no place like home!

We got home around 1 today, and it is so nice to be back! Summer was so happy to see her animals, and they were happy to see her too.

She is definitely a much happier kid at home than at the hospital. She's been running all over the house, flying her babies around and playing with her toys. She's still a bit clingier than usual, but so much better than she was at the hospital.

She finished her steroids yesterday, so she just came home on pain meds. We're working to ease her off the oxycodone quickly because it's causing some major tummy problems for her. Hopefully she'll be only taking Tylenol soon.

We didn't end up meeting with the oncologist this morning before we left the hospital, but we'll see them during the follow-up appointments scheduled for the next week. Tomorrow, her blood hormone levels will be retested to verify that the one low level has gone back up now that she's done with steroids. Then next Wednesday, we'll see the neurosurgeons to check the surgery wound, and we'll meet with the HemeOnc (Hematology & Oncology) group then too.

Jason's back at work now. We're going to see how the transition home goes over the next couple of days, but I'll probably go back sometime next week. We've been through a lot, so we want to make sure both Summer and I are ready for me to be at work all day.


  1. I am so glad that you are home and it sounds like Summer is so happy to be back home too. I'm sorry Jason is back to work so soon and I hope that you are able to take the time you need to be home with your baby. This was a difficult week for you guys and you need time to adjust and wind down and just be with her. Love, Kim

  2. I am so, so glad that you are back home with your pets where you belong! I am sure Summer will do her best healing at home! We miss you and can't wait to see you again!
