A note from Mommy:

Tonight was supposed to be Michelle's last night being Peyton's nurse.  Because Peyton is far enough out from her surgery and not "sick" enough on a regular basis according to current Medicaid guidelines, the only nursing she qualifies for is respite hours every quarter (about 50 hours a month).  Although we knew we would stay in touch (she might even be Peyton's nurse next year for preschool) it was still a sad day knowing we wouldn't be seeing her four nights a week.  We have had our share of bad nurses but have only had a few really good nurses.  Michelle was all the things we had been looking for - she's dependable, she's knowledgable, she stays awake on shift, she loves Peyton and Peyton absolutely adores her. 

But surprise!  Apparently there were still 144 hours that hadn't been used so we have a reprieve - we will continue to see her smiling face 4 nights a week through 6/23.  Yeah!
