So I’m off sick again. I came down with something over the weekend and didn’t go in to the NICU on Sunday. I was unfortunately well enough to go into work this morning – especially since it’s the most insanely busy week of work of the year – but again tonight, just not well enough to risk it. Too sneezy, too snuffly, and crap does it suck. Karen took the stroller in today to get fitted with new reinforced areas to hold Nyana’s gear, and for the first time Nyana got to test drive her sweet ride. Since I wasn’t there too see it myself, and since I wasn’t there tonight to tell her how awesome she did with it (I hear she did quite awesome), I had to satisfy myself with just flipping through the pics of the last couple days. Here are my favourites.
…and, in an interesting scientific fun fact kind of way, here is an x-ray comparison. The one on the right was taken on Oct. 26, when Nyana was a month old and her BPD was just setting in. The one on the left was taken this past Saturday, Apr. 9.
You can see on the left side how the white wispy cobwebs are less than on the right side. This is good – that white wispy stuff is her BPD. She is getting better, we can see that, however slowly it may be.
This might also be a good time to see how many people are paying attention to what we really write, after being hypnotized into a soft lull with pictures alone. There are folks who would get distracted with the pictures above and not go all the way down to the bottom of the page to read all these boring words. And those folks would miss out on this – we have a bit of news. For those of you still paying attention, and for those who scrolled down this far…wait for it….we have a release date. I can’t jinx anything by telling you what date it is, but I can say it’s true and it’s “soon”. We don’t want to say too much and get excited too quickly, but yes. We have a date, folks. A final goal. Take a breath, relax, and re-read that last bit. You did not mistake yourself. There will be a day very soon when you will see Nyana at home. There’s still some work to be done, and many pieces of the puzzle must still fall into place to make it happen on time, but yes – the light at the end of the tunnel got very bright today. Babygirl’s coming home.
