Tomorrow will mark one week since we arrived... and we are all starting to feel like ourselves again. After Gabrielle and I said a very tearful goodbye to the docs and nurses on 3B at BCCH, we were escorted by the ambulance personel downstairs and were ambulanced from the hospital to Canuck Place. It was a warm sunny day when we arrived. After being in the hospital for almost 4 months, I felt hollow, I was utterly exhausted, big bags under my eyes, pale, had no idea what the next week or month of our lives would look like, hadn't showered in a few days and was ready to collapse.
Canuck Place is allowing Regan and I to take care of ourselves, which is, ironically helping us take care of everyone and everything else.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
