1 more sleep until Christmas....

Well she has made it back for Christmas! Hooray....I brought her home from the hospital this morning accompanied by a wheelchair and more pills than you can shake a stick at ! I have become Doctor Craig for the next couple of days administering the plethora of tablets and patches etc (Karena get's to do her own injections tho - she doesn't seem to want my expertise in that area !).
So with just a couple of hours notice our best friends in the world came over and we had some fun, some food, some silly dancing (Karena didn't do that bit!) and some laughter.
She's really glad to be home but is massively uncomfortable inside her tummy. The hospital are keeping her room for the next few days so that we can pop back whenever we need to. Not sure how many days Karena will be at home - not too many I suspect, but for tonight at least she is asleep in her own bed....She's done too much this afternoon and is totally whooped.
So Christmas day will be here in an hour or so, and we are planning to do presents, turkey and all the rest here at our house along with Karena's parents, her sister and 2 nephews. Should be fun !
Appreciating your ongoing prayers for the babe, and of course......a Very Merry Christmas to you!
