I'm so happy we went. I already can't imagine life without her. I still have some cramping, but at least now it is bearable. We are concerned I may have developed another stricture higher up in the intestines. So I'm back on a full liquid diet. Hm, yummy.

The best and the worst all wrapped up into one.
Saturday was suppose to be the happiest day, we were going to pick up Gracie. Unfortunately, things started down hill Friday night. I became extremely ill. We aren't fully sure as to why, but it all started with incredible intestinal cramps. I'm talking a 9 out 10 on a pain scale. They lasted all night, which meant no sleep. Then, by Saturday morning I progressed to vomiting. So, there we sat Saturday morning trying to decide between going to the ER or picking up Gracie. I couldn't stand the thought of not getting her. Picking her up had been my bright spot over the past few weeks. She won out. We packed up the car with plenty of paper towel and puke bags and off we went.
