Can you remember what you were doing this time last year? I can! I can remember exactly what I was doing at 3:15pm on December 9th, 2009. I was pulling in my drive way for the first time in 7 weeks. I was sitting in the back seat with a screaming baby ready to come home. I remember it like yesterday, but it feels so long ago at the same time. It might have been one of the best days of my life.
Oh how I can't believe a year is passed. I can't believe the knowledge we've gained in a year. The things we've been through and the milestones that have been accomplished.
Not once in that year have I taken being home for granted. I love this place. I love sleeping in my bed every single night. There are so many memories that have been made here and more to come.
I remember being so scared coming home. We didn't know how stable Lynlee would ever be. We didn't know all the signs to look for. For weeks maybe even months I would stare at her while she slept praying she would wake up. I was a mess. But somehow, someway things got easier. I can actually go days now without thinking will today be the day she gets "sick". I didn't think this would ever happen especially a year ago.
When I right this blog next year I'm hoping I've gained this much knowledge and more. I'm hoping that I'll be more confident "reading" Lynlee. I'm hoping her stability continues and I'm amazed at how long we've been with low ammonia's.
So here's to hoping and to another year at being home!
