one amazing girl
i have one amazing daughter.
she woke up ready to go and get this over with. no drama. a little nervous (she had butterflies in her stomach). but mostly smiles.
she was thanking all her nurses/doctor and handing out their little gifts as they each came in and met her and did their respective jobs. her heart is huge. i'm not bragging, i'm just saying. her heart is huge and i was humbled by it, the God has allowed me to be her mom.
everything went EXACTLY like they said it would. surgery was on time. exactly 40 minutes long. when her doctor came to let us know it went well, he had his scarf on :-) i almost cried...everyone was so wonderful!
her nurse said she was her best tonsil patient ever. not sure if she always says that. but i am choosing to believe there's some truth there :-) she was great during recovery at the hospital...little smiles and just handled it all so well.
since we've been home, she's done well. but is having a hard time keeping her pain medication down. we are doing her next dose in about an hour (8:30 pm-ish) if you could pray that she would keep it down? (we are giving her bits of applesauce/slurpee before but it's still upsetting her stomach.) it will REALLY help as the pain increases. her throat is hurting more and more and it's only going to get worse over the next few days.
it's been a LONG day. but i'm overwhelmed with the amazing daughter God has blessed me with. watching her walk through this day was inspiring.
thank you for your prayers! we feel them!
