All of the struggle worth it….


Ryleigh has been discharged today. We are happy and exhausted. She still needs one on one care as she has difficulty moving and doing things on her own. We are all learning how to deal with her ostomy with cleanings and replacing. A huge learning curve but we are meeting the challenge.

She needs to go to some follow up appointments but we are aiming to be home by April 6! We will spend the time in Vancouver resting on our own schedule not the schedules of others.

I am so played out that this post has become very minimalist — Ryleigh is getting better, Chloe continues to be strong, and we are all working on being outside of the hospital.

  4. Whooooo hoooooo!! Cheering for you all. Yes, take the time it takes so everything heals well and good! Rest from the deep exhaustion and enjoy this new learning stage of the journey. Vanderhoof should have less snow by the 6th, anyway, and the weather will be warmer for Ryleigh. Thanks for the posts and sharing. It feels so good to share in your journey! One small step at a time:) hugs to all!
