Welcome to the Mount!



We said a bittersweet goodbye to our friends at Hopkins today and traveled by ambulance to Mt. Washington.  

Abby was not thrilled with loading onto the ambulance, but she settled down when she realized I really was going with her!

We settled in at The Mount, thanks to my wonderful parents who brought all our stuff over and helped me unpack!  They rock!



Abby has already been seen by her doctor, 3 therapists, 2 child life specialists, and the therapy dog! :)


Fabulous news:  Abby chewed wonderfully for her feeding therapist!!!!  We were all amazed at how well she did. It looked fantastic and SO much better than before!  The new jaw alignment is working for her! 

Later, some Ravens Mega Fans came to visit.  They handed out treats and had cake.  These big, fierce-looking men were so sweet and gentle with the kids!


Abby ate almost an entire piece of cake during the party!!! I was ecstatic! She says that it is a lot easier to swallow now.  Yay!!!!

The Child Life Specialists then had the kids make their own Ravens shirts. In loyalty to our Redskins, Abby decided to use sparkly purple to make her own shirt!  She was 100% the artistic director!


It's been a fun first day, so hopefully they will have more fun things to do this weekend!
