Fixing Vivian's hair before we head home. I watched a video on YouTube to learn how to French braid!

Saying goodbye to some of our favorites in the Medical City Children's Hospital PICU (nurses extraordinaire Ronelle and Kara are on the left in blue, the wonderful Dr. Matson is in the white coat)

Bidding farewell to Kara in the hospital lobby. It felt like we had come full circle when I realized Kara was Vivian's nurse today; she was our nurse on admission 32 days ago and she saw us through some very dark times. Kara was ecstatic to see how well Vivian was doing today

Leaving the hospital. Vivian didn't quite know what to think!

Dots, Aunt Mair and Tucker were waiting for us when we arrived home

My mom tied these yellow bows before she left. They adorned the trees in our front yard and the columns on our porch

My friend Kristin dropped off this big Rudolph book. Do you think Vivian liked it?

Vivian was so happy to be in her own room again that she didn't even notice Robert and Will had removed her bed and put the mattress on the floor

It didn't take Percy long to curl up on Vivian's bed again! He really missed her

I am so thrilled for all of you that Vivian is back in the comfort of her own home. The welcome sign is gorgeous and you are too cute watching a you tube video to learn how to french braid her hair! I will pray for Vivian's continued recovery.
