surgery

Grace's surgery was this past Tuesday - 4 days ago. She had it done at SouthEastern Private Hospital just outside Melbourne. The operation went well and I am extremely glad it's all over with.
Grace was very brave. Bruce and I were so impressed with her. Way to go, Gracie-Loo!
Daddy took a picture of us in the hospital lobby...waiting to get called back for the surgery.

This was just after they brought her in her room from recovery. She was still very groggy from the anesthesia. I hated seeing her like this ;(
She did get sick on her purple kitty cat shirt the doctor let her wear into surgery. She was SO SAD about getting throw-up on that shirt! It was pathetically adorable. I assured her mommy would wash it and it would get all clean....good thing it did!

The dr kept her overnight and she continued to improve. *Sigh of relief*. She began keeping bits of food and drink down so her tiny IV got to come out and we all got to come home! Hooray! And hooray for a healthy little girl!

So glad that everything went well! I hope she's feeling like herself again, only now breathing easier :) I bet it was so hard to see her like that. Olivia will have to have surgery when she's about 4 and I'm dreading it.

Having been been under anesthesia recently myself, I applaud Ms. Grace for her heroics. Better to get all that behind you - besides, her future husband will be happy to have a wife that doesn't snore louder than he does :-)
