Yesterday when Jake came over to visit, he brought the iPad and I created a second Skype account so that I can call from my MacBook in the hospital to the iPad at home. Today we gave it a go ... and it was fairly successful !!
Also entertaining was when she would run off for help or to see Jake or move around the side of the table so I couldn't see her. It's odd to not be able to adjust my view to see what she's up to, haha, but she always came back and was excited I was still there.
I think being able to Skype with her, especially on the days they don't come over to visit, will be a huge help to me in keeping my spirits up and feeling involved in daily life at home.
