Kiera is chewing her way out of the hospital!

Well, we are officially getting discharged tomorrow. Yesterday, Kiera chewed through 3 suction ballards, her leads cable, the black lead, and her SAT monitor cable. She left the temp probe alone because she went through one of those on Thursday. She's also biting her nails since this last admission, incidentally. Can we say I have a stressed out little 3 year old who is done being sick?

So, I just finished cleaning the carpet in her play room (living room) where all the g-tube and feeding pump mishaps have routinely fed my carpeting. I cleaned it during her last admission, as well. It's actually a very convenient time since hospitalizations are the only block of time I have to enable the carpet to dry for 24 hours.

I have some new nurses starting this week since I lost one due to the hospitalization interferring with her paycheck, so I am excited to train new people. Plus, some of my great nurses who have been out with injuries the last few months, and well now and planning to start working for me again, so I will have some night coverage again. Kiera is also getting a new therapist this week who likes to use music and dance in her physical therapy, so I think she will have fun with that.

Other than that, it is a usual overbooked week. Restaurant business to run, Grades due, Kiera care, Mary Kay meeting, house to clean that has fallen apart, high schoolers to monitor, TAXES! Can't wait!
