First Day at the Hospital
Yep, the snake bit her. We think he struck her a number of times.
Elizabeth felt better with the band-aid on.
This is on Thursday, things should be getting better...but they didn't.
Elizabeth finally relaxed after Mom got back from taking a shower on Thursday morning.
Look how swollen my little baby is.
Here's Elizabeth dressing up in all the fun toys she got from the hospital. Notice how swollen that little hand is.
Elizabeth enjoyed this little sock doll aunt Pam made for her. She named it Betty Boo Boo, and had a lot of fun poking her and putting band-aids on her.
Playing with Nana Laura, she is starting to do better at this point.
This is today. She is starting to have some movement in her hand
This is about 10 minutes before we left the hospital. She was so excited!
This is the best her hand has looked in days.
Short version: Long one may come later
Wednesday: Family get together....miniature golf, golf ball in bush in backyard, rattlesnakes attack.
