WOW!!! This past week or so has been very very crazy for us! Where shall I start? While Lilah was still in the hospital last Monday, trent was called off leave because they had his deployment orders ready, so he had to return to work that Tuesday to finish out processing and get finalize his leave. So, instead of having a nice relaxing week at home w/Lilah and I after she got out of surgery, Trent was rushing around trying to finalize everything and get things ready. My mom had to leaave on Thursday, and after that, it was just us three.
Then, that weekend Trent left. Which I really didn't like because we didn't get much 'our time' before he left. We were to busy trying to make sure Lilah was ok, or that he had all his info ready to leave, things packed, etc. After he left, we spent about a day getting ready for the movers to come and pack up the house.
I was not ready for that at all! Luckily one of our friends (thank you Cin!!!) was able to take off Monday and help me with the packers and Lilah. Big help! The movers were nice, worked with me well, and didn't break anything this time!!! I think the fact that I made them cookies and lunch helped with that also!
After that was all done, I had to get together the stuff Lilah and I would need to take home with us. I did not realize how much that would actually be until my dad came and got boxes for it all! We ended up renting a UHaul and pulling the stuff back to Kansas with us. The drive took about 11.5 hours total, not to bad in time.
Lilah and I are finally home in Wichita, KS. We will be here until Trent gets back, maybe 6 months or so. During that time, I will be going to school, working, being around family once again. Looking forward to some great times here!

So0, we all made it home Tuesday evening. The drive was pretty good. Lilah only woke once in one terrified fit, but we were able to calm her long enough to get home. She has been sleeping alot lately and still taking her fluids and some food. But we figure she will be like this for a little bit more to come... With that in mind, I am not sure we are going to go to the LPA District 8 Regional in Corpus Christi next weekend. I think we are going to be leaving San Antonio that weekend to head back to Wichita, KS.
Oh, on another side note, Trent was recalled from leave this past week because he is leaving this weekend. No fun on that... so, Lilah and I will be going back to Wichita to be closer to family. (Although we will miss our extended family here!!!) I feel this will be better for us because this is the first time we will be without Trent for a long period of time, and since Lilah is not in school and I am not working, it will be nice to see and be around family for the holidays and all the other big events.
In the mean time, please continue to pray for Lilah and for a safe trip for Trent.
I will try to get some photos loaded in the next week or so of our hospital stay and our brave little girl!
