We moved to Miss Maia's new "home" this afternoon. Again, there was a lot of commotion with the transfer so it became pretty overwhelming for her. She just wasn't calming down well so I finally put her in the stroller and off we went. Walking for about 30 minutes did the trick so when we came back to the room, I put on one of her favorite movies "Cars" and she was calm.
Dinner went pretty well. Maia enjoyed the mystery meat - lol! It was listed as pureed chicken with chicken gravy, but definitely had dark gravy on it. Not sure about the meat. But whatever it was, she ate about 2/3. Seems like protein is probably the most important thing to get in her system right now so I was glad that she was happy to eat it. A few bites of her other foods as well.
Tomorrow will start the more intensive regimen. She will have about an hour each of physical and occupational therapy daily. I can't remember if speech therapy starts tomorrow or not, but know that is in the plan, too. I was asked today what my goals would be for Maia during this stay. I didn't know how to answer that and basically said the same to the therapist. She told me that their goal is to try to get close to Maia's baseline before discharge. I want to believe that, but it seems SO far away right now.
Please pray for Mark. He is home with a stomach bug. Tomorrow morning, he's scheduled for his root canal. Go figure.
I'm going to leave Maia in Nana's capable hands for a little while in the morning. Matthew has a speech therapy appointment at the same time as Mark's dentist appointment.
Think we should try to squeeze in a little more? ;-)
I am wiped out, so am going to try to get some sleep. Praying for a peaceful night for my girl. I'll try to take some pictures tomorrow - this is a pretty nice room, I might want to move in - lol!
