Scarlet is Home!

Scarlet is HOME!!!! We are so thrilled to be back home! There really is no place like it. Scarlet is back with her regular Peds DR. and has a home care nurse come once a week to draw her blood and other checks. It may be my imagination but she seems to be happier now that we are home, maybe it's because I am or because she's with her daddy again. She can't go out in public places until Sept when they will check immune function. Which also means that we really limit visitors, especially kids. We still can go on walks and be outside, we just have to be really careful exposing her to the sunlight. We went on a short walk yesterday and in order to take her out I have to put sunscreen on her. Not an easy thing to do with a 9 month old baby, darn near poked her eye trying to put some on her nose. For that reason, we will really limit being outside. But it gets a little suffocating sometimes staying in doors all the time, especially after having been stuck inside the 6 months in the hospital. So don't be surprised if you see us out walking the block when it isn't covered in snow!
Charlie's work sent Scarlet balloons on her first day home. They were so thoughtful! She had fun playing with them. They came with little play turtles which she loves playing with. Anyway, thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Where'd Scarlet go?

Scarlet loves hiding in her blankets! It was pretty funny watching her spy on me through them.

New Years Eve

Scarlet's first New Years Eve. It was just the two of us, I tried to get pics of her with the fireworks on the tv in the background.


Scarlet's temporary playpen. It was fun while it lasted. I started getting too worried about leaving her in there when I was doing stuff around the house. She's smiling because she was caught playing with her tubing! Pretty cute

Burke Gilman Trail

Scarlet and I on our last walk with Mandy in Seattle. Scarlet looks so angelic asleep in her stroller. Like an angel polar bear!
