Day +22

FREEDOM!!!!!  After 31 days, Alyssa walked outside for the first time.  And it couldn’t have happened on a better day...it was sunny and 70 when we walked out of here.  Granted, it’s not like we could grab dinner and get our nails done BUT it still felt great getting her out of the hospital. We just went back to our Airbnb. I made her a gourmet meal of Red Baron Thin Crust Cheese Pizza (her request 🤷🏻‍♀️). She laid on the couch, watched some TV, and then.....took a nap lol. God love her.  She was just worn out.  But, it’s a start and she was already asking the nurse about getting a pass for tomorrow as well.  The nurse explained, they are usually happy to give them out as long as she is feeling good, fever-free, and compliant with the rules.  So, we’ll see how tomorrow goes.  Today was a good day.
