Faye was able to come home 11 days ago and is headed back to the hospital tomorrow morning. Her stay at home was extended 5 days due to low counts. She had lots of time for playing with Mommy, Daddy, Mitchell, Nixon, her cousin Covey, Aunt Julia and Uncle Matt. Her habits from the hospital played a big part in how she plays at home. She asks multiple times a day to go on a walk. She gets out her stethascope and asks if she can "listen to you". She even plays "hospital"! But in her fantasy hospital, she's just had a baby where she then takes a "shower", walks very slow and "goes to sleep" with her new baby, then the nurse tells her she can go home. It's pretty funny!
She had 2 clinic visits while at home, just to get her blood taken and counts checked. At the second visit she told Stacey she could do the poke all by herself! She sat in the chair by herself and put out her arm and let them tie on the tight blue thing. When she saw the needle she lost her nerve and needed her mom's help. But that's a big step! She's getting so brave and we all know she's one tough cookie who's ready to handle Round 4!
