We spent the morning opening presents and eating breakfast at RMH. Then, we headed off to the hospital to spend some time with Abby. She was in a good mood and awake a lot of the time. I was saddened by the lack of parents at the hospital. :( We came back here to meet up with my family, open up presents with them, and eat Christmas dinner. Then we all visited with Abby!
It was a different Christmas, to say the least, but it was good. We were together...all 4 of us. There was a time when I wasn't sure that would happen, so I'm thankful!
Christmas isn't about presents, but Caleb did have a few favorite gifts this year:
* A red scooter
* Batman Trio Batcave (it's kind of like Legos)
* A Leapster (with a Toy Story 3 game!)
* Buzz Lightyear that makes all kinds of sounds
* A take-along Thomas train track with trains
I also made Caleb a special doll that is just like Abby, complete with trach and g-tube (with a little help from some friends at the hospital!) He can suction and feed the baby just like we do with Abby. The respiratory therapists hooked Caleb up with all kinds of vent tubing, catheters, syringes, etc., so he's all set! He liked it, but I think the doll will be really good when we go home.
Our present to each other was our amazing camera, with which I took plenty of pictures!
I hope your Christmas was just as wonderful!
