lauren did great!
surgery went great!
the hospital was amazing.
they went far beyond anything I expected.
she was thrilled that they told her she could decorate her bed (race car) with crayons. she went right to it. rainbows. hearts. a little girl with purple hair. the sun. birds and the #7. Race car #7.
they got "bessy" all set for her "operation" too. lauren was so happy that they let her take "bessy" in to the OR.
they gave her some "silly juice" which made her a little loopy. she says to me, "mommy, I don't think this stuff is working." Meanwhile the nurses and I could plainly see it was working.
1 hour in surgery.
2 hours in recovery eating teddy grahams, apple juice and graham crackers (she woke up very hungry).
home by noon.
happily eating a popsicle and watching Homeward Bound.
thank you everyone for your love and prayers.
we memorized Joshua 1:9 on the way to the hospital this morning. a great verse for all of life's ups and downs. Thanks again Elli!
