We received a phone call yesterday around noon telling us the Whitney would be discharged. Once we got over our surprise we began to get excited. We had meetings all afternoon with what to expect with her overall care and specifically for her shunt. Thankfully, Thursday the physical therapist placed a piece of foam in her car seat with a hole cut out of it to relieve the pressure on her back. We packed up all of her things, put her in the car seat and headed home. We are also thankful we live close to the hospital as Whitney should not be on her back for more than 20 minutes at a time and only if necessary.
Last night was a bit rocky as Whitney was missing her noisy neighbors and favorite nurses but today was better. All four of us continue to adjust but I am sure it will get easier day by day.
