We’re at Baylor Our Children’s House which will be referred to as OCH going forward. We’ve been admitted, signed numerous forms and registered for our first meal. After our new family orientation at 1:00 PM CDT, it will all be official.
It is a bittersweet move because we had to leave our Medical City PICU family behind. I will have one more update later today regarding those wonderful people. We made sure to get one last parting shot of Claire in her room.
We had been cautioned that we may be sharing a room at OCH. We’re not! We have a double room right now all to ourselves. I don’t expect it to last for the entire rehab, but it’s nice to start out with some privacy.
Claire has always been strong-willed and never hesitated to share her displeasure. She made sure everyone knew she was uncomfortable during the transport.
The transport took a lot out of Claire and she was eager for a nap when we got settled in the room. We’re glad she is sleeping and sounding so much better as she dozes. Her lungs aren’t as heavy sounding and she’s getting better rest because of it.
Thank you for your prayers during the transport. We have a long road ahead and we hope to have good news to share for most of the steps on the way. We aren’t naive enough to think it will all be rosy, but we take comfort knowing that we have such strong support and hopes behind us.
