I actually wrote the post below yesterday, but I had some problems getting internetted yesterday.
So I should also mention that Frankie is now keeping down food and was having so much fun playing when I called this morning that she couldn't be bothered coming over to breathe a few "Hi, mommy!" 's into the phone. Sigh.
Last night we got a huge box of supplies for Annika's PICC line delivered (syringes, flushes, bags of TPN, dressing change kits, etc.) When Anni heard that she had a box of stuff downstairs, she got very excited. But, oh, the disappointment when we opened it and she saw such boring stuff.
Upon closer inspection, though, she decided that the empty box bore a striking resemblance to a princess castle. She put a pillow inside and installed herself under a blanket tent with all her stuff. She's a real "lemons to lemonade" kind of girl.
This morning she received some decidedly more pleasing mail (thanks, Catherine and Marisa), and boy was she pleased.
