Waiting in a Yellow Gown

Today wasn't the happiest day at Mount Washington.  I came into Abby's room this morning to discover that she has been put on contact precautions, which basically means that she may have something others can catch.  Sooo, anyone that comes within three feet of her must donn a yellow gown, gloves, and a mask.

I was thinking my yellow gown days were over!  Not to mention that I hate that Abby can't feel my hands or see my face when I hold her.  It's just so impersonal!  But, I understand that this is what we have to do in order to keep it from spreading even more.

Our other piece of not-so-great news is that we will probably be here at least another month.  That's if everything goes well and there are no set-backs....which probably means more than a month.  We're just really starting to feel the stress of being apart for so long, so I think we're all ready to just be at home again...together.

But, we'll do what we have to do to ensure that our girl will be safe and truly ready to come home!
