We drove the familiar streets back to the Target House. When we pulled up, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the beautiful cherry trees were all in blossom surrounding the grounds! Gorgeous pink blossoms which seemed to make the moment much cheerier! We walked in and the familiar faces we just said good bye to only weeks ago happily greeted us. Memories held true as Anthony ran straight for the movie section in the front lobby. We took the elevator back up to the 5th floor up to our new room! Everything is flipped, but I like this room SO much better! I love being able to watch the action out in the courtyard! We can see people coming and going to Target House II. I can't wait until a few months from now as this grassy area will be covered in Firefly lights (or as I called them as a kid, lightening bugs). I fondly remember how we used to run around on the grass catching them. It was the highlight of the humidity. That and the amazing thunder and lightening storms to come! I love them!
|Just after this was taken, there were a few kids outside kicking a soccer ball around. It's going to be SO much more entertaining on this side of the building!|

|Denny had a vegetarian chili cooking in the crock pot. It smelled so good!|

Now here is a sight I CAN live without.
I love that it's still up! hahahaha.
Denny and I are going over the list of rules for when Kayla will be admitted inpatient. I have to admit some of it had me in tears. Just some things I didn't expect to hear. But when I see these kids walking around (or running!), it assures me again that Kayla will be one of those lucky ones. This is temporary. It isn't forever. Hopefully, it's just this one time in her life.
I am going to read over this important stack of papers filled with way too much info so that I can fill you all in better on my next blog. Denny just finished going over it all and read a bunch of it to me. I want to get my facts straight and only give you the important info. At least I'll make sure it's only the info that will pertain to Kayla's treatment. Some of the info is for high risk patients (Kayla is Average risk). Hearing Denny read me some of that info had me in tears. I am grateful again for the small blessings... or huge. Like the words "average risk".
We got all unpacked and I made a list for Costco tomorrow. Kayla has school at 11:00. It's a very light day. Denny is hoping to get to the hospital early enough to grab us some tickets to go and see the Grizzly's/ Lakers game tomorrow night at 8pm. That would be a fun thing to go and do before Thursday. Ok.
Anthony and Kayla just took luke-warm (at best) showers. Denny thinks it's because it's peak hours. I don't know. We never had this issue over in the other room. He swears it got hot this morning. One more thing to miss about home I guess. I'm calling maintenance in the morning if it's not hot for me. I mean, come on! We need hot showers...
With love from Memphis,
ps. I forgot to include Target House 1 to our address under the blog title, "We have an address". I amended it.
