Let’s Get This Potty Started!

Sheeeeeeee’s comin’ out!

Eliana’s coming home with a NEW (to her) FREAKIN’ KIDNEY!  Time to celebrate!

Just not for too long.  Things are better, but it’s still going to be a ton of work, and we’re almost starting over from scratch to develop a whole new routine for her new situation.  We’ve worked our butts off for the last two years or so to get to this point, and there is quite literally a lifetime of work ahead to keep it going (more on that in the coming days).

Sorry if that’s a bummer.  It’s not cynicism or pessimism – it’s just the facts.

But at some point this weekend, just to keep a tiny bit of our sanity, we’ll take the time for a few moments of WAHOO!  Maybe when we walk out of the hospital, maybe when we put the first pee-filled diaper in the diaper pail, or maybe just as we’re dozing off knowing that all four of us are going to fall asleep in our own beds for the first time in weeks.

So in Eliana’s honor, we ask you all to take time for your own WAHOO! moments this weekend.  Do something nice, hug someone, revel in nature – whatever – and reflect on what it took to get you there.
