Hi blog buddies. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your kind words, support, & prayers. Last night was rough, so after the DR this morning i've pretty much been asleep. Appointment went well. He thinks it's going to be fine and that the nerve endings will come back (i'm sure that's not the correct medical terminology). still numb in some areas. Said to watch for graying of the skin (tissue death). I thing it's graying, but that could just be because it's been exposed to air today where we had it all bandaged up. i'll get my freebie opinion when hubby get's home. All right no more about me (but again Thank you!!) this is my beautiful niece abby's blog!!! Now...a word from the new mom in china...
I am so very tired! The trip is rush rush, poor babies I don't know how they hang in there as well as they do! I have a sore throat, not sure if I am catching something (All the double dipping with the chopsticks) or it is just the smog, I took NyQuil and airborn tonight. I swear there is smoke smell coming thru the vents and this is a non smoking floor although I found an ashtray in the desk??? Abby except for a little runny nose is fine!
OMG she is so adorable, she giggles and cracks her self up constantly. It is amazing how quickly she has progressed, On gottcha day she could not go from a laying to sitting position and barely crawled. She is crawling, cruising on furniture, sitting up unaided, trying to go from a down position to standing. She can do it when she has something to pull up on. Today she started letting go and standing on her own. She looks so cute with her little arms stretched out to the sides for balance. I bet she will walk before we get home. She loves to walk when holding my fingers. I put her on the scale dressed and she weighs around 20 21 pounds. My girl is eating and pooping great! Her diaper rash is almost gone, Butt Paste rocks! She woke up 3 times last night. tonight i had to pack so after her bath i moved the crib over in the door alcove so she would be less disturbed. This hotel is noisy, she kept waking up so I put her in my bed. I am typing now in the dark so extra typos for sure! I will finish packing tom, we don't have to be out of the room till 1pm, flight leaves at 3pm for Guanjo (SP) 1 hr flight. Sat am medical appoint. Consulate appt on wed then we fly home that day. I am hoping things will be more relaxed with more down time.
Today we went to the Nanchang Pavillion. Gorgeous! Saw to wedding couples getting pictures done. They evidently rent a dress and get pictures done before they are married then buy a actual dress for the wedding day. I bought a lot of little things for A for gotcha day gift from her province. We also went to a book store where I got some cool bilingual books for abby. Also went to a music store so B(Travel mate) Could get an instrument. I forgot what u call it.
Yesterday we went to a museum made for a famous painter in Nanchang. Forgot his name, also went to a porcelain shop, Jiangxi is known for their porcelain. Bought some things for A. Then back to walmart where I bought luggage! It is now day 8 and still no luggage! This is so inappropriate! Guess u can see in the photos how pretty i look. No hair straightner. I tell you to bring the bare minimum! You really can find everything here although I am getting tired of the same 3 shirts and pants!!! Also poor Abby, I have 7 outfits for her and 2 pairs pjs, but it is hard cuz she wears her pjs as the1st layer then 2 outfits. I sent everything to the laundry so only had A pjs and 1 outfit to put her in. I was busted several times by the clothing police.
was too tired to post last nite. Skipped the visit to the tea house, Mom and H said it was great
Uncle H got on the horn and made some noise. Now united says both my bags are in Chicago (Ha vent we heard that before???) Say they will try to get them to Guanzeou (SP) ???? This totally sucks! I am at my breaking point now! 8 days is inexcusable!!!! Da&^%T I am MAD!!!!!!!
Abby just woke up for the 4th time, Carrie I am going to need your tricks. She is so happy during the day. Don't know if it is to noisy with me putsing around or if she is just uncomfortable, grieving, bad dreaaaaam??
2 things before i go, one L I hope you are in less pain! hope all went well at the MD, Mom left u a message. two-Big shout out to my ICU buddies! thanks for your nice comments, Sorry I have not been able to post more, hopefully that will change in Guamgou.
