Catch ya’ on the rebound

Our child is absolutely ridiculous.

She spent 11 days on a ventilator, heavily (and I mean HEAVILY) sedated.  You’d think it would take her a few days to rebound and be anything close to her regular self.

This picture was taken maybe 30 hours after the tube was removed, and just a couple of hours after an abdominal CT scan involving particularly gross dye that caused her serious intestinal distress.  Oh…and she’s literally tied down to the bed.

Yet here she is, looking and acting genuinely happy.

Ridiculous, no?  There’s a lesson in here somewhere, but I’m far too tired to try to find it.

    I think she takes after her GreatGrandMom Matilda who always saw the bright side of life.

    This picture completely captures the very essence of Eliana! That girl is as strong and full of joy as they come. So happy to see her smiling and improving!
