1:15: And We Wait

Princess woke up and downed a cup of juice, which means we can go home.

But there's a really sick kid on the floor, so the doctor has to deal with him before she can come back to us and sign all the papers. The nurse hopes we're out of here by 3:00.

There is no rest in a hospital. Just when she falls asleep something or someone wakes her up. An MA to take her temp, a med student to ask questions that we've already answered for the doctor, the cleaning lady, the loud speaker paging docs, another kid crying. I'd like to bolt the door shut so my tired little girl can sleep and start to feel better.


  1. I have always said that the hospital is NO place to get sleep. I remember feeling so bad as a nurse on night shift having to wake people up to give them a sleeping pill-- don't worry, I'm not that stupid :) Here's hoping you get home today and Evie truly can sleep in peace.
    Be blessed,

  2. Hey Amy! Just got caught up with you all since Beijing. Boy, has life been a whirlwind? Our Tian is finally settling in and learning what family means. We adore him, and I know you understand when I say that we have had some incredibly hard days. Nonetheless, God is good! It's good to hear about your family. Praying for you and Evie.

  3. Melissa,

    So good to hear from you! I think of you often. I'm happy to hear Tian is doing well. Can you send me the link to your blog. I'd love to catch up!
