Addison said good-bye to the ICU this morning and now she is settled in to her new room in the Children’s Heart Unit on the 3rd floor. It’s another BIG step in her road to recovery!
Addison pretty much slept through the transfer. For Aaron and I, it’s a little bit scary to be out of the ICU with its 24 hour a day nurse at the bedside. It is much quieter upstairs in our own room. We even have a window with a Japanese maple right outside. And there is room for us to stay overnight with Addison. The other amazing thing is that we probably won’t even be here for too long…maybe a week or two if she continues to do well.
We spent 3 weeks and 1 day in the ICU and it really became like a second home to us. The doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, physiotherapists, clerks, cleaning staff, and everyone in that unit took such good care of us during Addison’s stay. We really can’t say enough to thank them all for everything they did to get us through the trauma.
So on to the next part of this incredible journey!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
