Surprises today!!! I decided to go to the hospital late today. I had some housework that needed to be done, things to put away from our weekend, etc. I figured that since I stay the night at the hospital on Wednesdays, I'd get some things done while Ben was at school. I was just getting ready to leave when my Mom called. She told me that the hospital had been trying to get in touch with me, and when they couldn't, they called her. They had been calling my cell phone, which was in my purse and I didn't hear it. Anyway, the reason that they were calling was to let me know that they'd decided to move Elaina to the floor!!!!!! We are officially out of the PICU!!! I must say that I was not prepared for this, and so I've gone through a huge range of emotions today. I've mostly cried and cried. I can't say that I was excited when I found out. I was actually a little bit upset and frustrated! I know I'm going to sound crazy, but just yesterday they told me that she wouldn't be able to be moved anywhere until next week. We also have a meeting set up with the doctor from South Davis on Friday. The whole reason that I was looking at having Elaina go to South Davis was because we couldn't get her to the floor! Now that she's here, is South Davis really necessary? Urgh! I am very confused about the direction that we're going in now, and I'm not really sure what to do. I was also a little bit upset because they moved her to the floor before I could get to the hospital and I'm the kind of person that likes to have some control in what happens. Anyway, now that I'm here and we're all settled in, I'm feeling pretty good about the change. I love my floor nurses (I had the same ones when we started out here in May!) and they all remembered Elaina. Melissa (my favorite tech) came and loved on Elaina for a long time. She was SO happy that we were back upstairs. I know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers and that we don't get to choose the way that they are answered, this is part of His plan, and I need to just accept it as part of the miracle of her life.
