Day 10

Millie was in a singing mood today. I think she sang Party In The USA to about 4 different people at various times. Although her spirits were up for the most part, she was in and out of being a little depressed today. She kept crying and questioning whether or not she would ever be able to leave the hospital. She cried for her daddy, brother, puppy, and kitty. It broke my heart. We are on day 10, but that means it's been 21 days straight of sitting in her hospital room. It's beginning to take its toll.

We also had lots of visitors today and it was really nice. It made the day go by much faster. Nana came and read Fancy Nancy books, Grandma Jager looked at bridal magazines, and Uncle Andy played a little Rummikub. It's her new favorite game, no more Uno for her. 

We got Jack (the puppy) back from my sister Lindsay. She had been watching him for a week and Austin has been so happy to see him. They even snuggled on the floor tonight. It was so sweet. I tried to take a picture, but it was dark and turned out blurry. 

Millie is well. She has started to struggle with doing her mouth care, which has to be done 4x a day. She gags and throws up half the time. We are still really pushing it though, because I know it's extremely important if we want to keep her sores at bay. 

Tonight I have a killer headache and am really looking forward to going to bed. On that note, Goodnight and thank you so much for the prayers and love. I'm off to bed.

I miss hearing Millie sing! And I love Rummikub! No one in my family will play it with me. Looks like it's time for me to come visit Millie again! She can sing while we play the game! Love to you all! - Miss Patti
