Photos from Karsie's 4th Hospital Stay (She's Home Now)

Here are a few photos. We didn't take a ton of pictures, so these are all within a few days, but we got some.
This is our only Bakersfield photo. She got to ride in an ambulance from here to San Diego. They strapped her into a gurney and she rode in her car seat. That was a very long night.
Karsie didn't like a lot of things about this trip, but she especially didn't like the cast that they put on her left arm to keep her from pulling out her IV lines.
We put this picture up for all our friends that watch How I Met Your Mother. We don't watch it hardly at all, but we did see the episode where Barney doesn't take a bad picture. Karsie is very much is like that. Just before we snapped this, she was SCREAMING her head off. Just as we clicked she looked up and made this face. Priceless.
Here's a more realistic photo of Karsie's feelings about the hospital stay.
Karsie had a pretty nasty tumble onto the side rail of the hospital bed. We had to put up the picture of her goose egg. It looked pretty bad for like 10 minutes. Then it went away quickly. Kids are resilient.
Later in the week, Karsie started to feel better and take pictures like these.
Discharge day. Karsie was obviously feeling well enough to tackle Mom's burrito during her morning read.

She's home now and doing fairly well considering. They sent us home on continuous feed, so it's our job to start condensing again. We didn't ever get to go to our other two appointments that were supposed to be this week, but we got the one surgical appointment down, even though it didn't produce the best of news. Oh well, we know what it's like to wait. Thank you for all the prayers and support.


  1. Thanks for the pictures! I especially love that second-to-last one that shows off her amazing big blue eyes. I'm so glad that she was able to leave the hospital... it was an awfully rough week for her!

  2. LOVE the new pics! She is SO Barney....can't take a bad pic! Glad she is out! :)

  3. Karsie is so darn cute. She has beautiful eyes and I am amazed at how far she has come!!! Go Karsie!!!!
