A Day Pass!

As I was ordering my omelette this morning in the cafeteria at Sick Kids someones stroller caught my eye. As I was checking it out and thinking that I have the same stroller but haven't been able to use it yet, I suddenly realized that the child in it was Kallie! My husband, Jon, and daughter, Kallie, came and surprised me!! It was a GREAT surprise because I've been getting SO bored here and needed a distraction. 

We were able to get a day pass for Bronson and we took him out of the hospital for the very first time! I've waited fourteen weeks for this day to come! Taking him home would have been better, but out for a two hour walk is good enough! Both Kallie and Bronson slept the entire time we were out and it gave my husband and I a chance to catch up. 

It's been quite the journey to get where we are today but as we were walking outside with both our kids the last fourteen weeks seemed to become a blur. The constant worry of Bronson's health faded away as we walked the streets without an IV pole, O2 monitor, oxygen tank or any other attachments.   It's wonderful being able to start experiencing all the firsts of adjusting to a family of four. :)
