So sorry that I have not blogged since coming home, but honestly, that little thing they call jet lag is NO JOKE!! I didn't even feel human for the first 2 days home, and I don't think our new precious 2 year old did either! We were all exhausted and experiencing a huge transition, but everyday is getting better and easier. I say easier, because I had obviously completely put how hard it was to have a 2 year old in the VERY back corner of my mind! But, she is getting used to her new home, her new family and very slowly to her new dog!!
We arrived back home to Charlotte about 7 pm last Thursday night. I cannot tell you how excited I was to get off that last plane and know that I didn't have to hop right on another one! Tulah really did great on the plane.... as long as I was holding her, which was fine.... but, during 20 hours of flying, one tends to just need a little break! Too bad Tulah didn't see it that way!!
This was a trip like no other we have ever taken, and we came home to a homecoming like no other!! As we made our way down the escalator towards the baggage claim, I saw a sea of red.... and it was moving up and down. I thought, Hmmm..... is my equilibrium that off from flying ?? No!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was that sea of red... and they were jumping up and down with excitement to see us!! (ok, well really just to see Tulah!!!)
Tulah also had her first MD appt yesterday. She did great! We have to start all of her immunizations over, so she got 4 shots, but she was a trooper! We have several specialists to see regarding all of her special needs, but the doctor gave us the most encouraging comment. She said, "this time next year, all of this will be a distant memory, and she will be running around with everybody else her age"!! That was great to hear, and even though I know these next months will be very challenging, I know that as tough as this little girl is, she can do ANYTHING!!!!
