Home Again, Home Again
We are home from Shriners! K did really well with her surgery to say the least. Her surgery was the first of the morning, with her going in around 7:30. The surgery lasted for about an hour and the doctor was very pleased with how things went. She has less pain medication, but she seems to be handling it well. We will post some pictures of her new little hot pink cast. She is a trooper and she has surprised everyone at the hospital with how well she did with the surgery. Only about 30 minutes after we were able to see her she was ready to go anywhere but the room. We had to wheel her around in a wagon for awhile because she had an IV in her foot and other gadgets connected to her. After she was able to get the IV out we went for some major Little Tike riding. She let everyone know of her presence and we were so grateful that we would be able to come home and let her sleep in her own bed (which she is doing right now-in the brace and cast). K constantly amazes me because I know she is little and doesn't really know what is going on, but I can't help thinking she has a strength that most people never reach. I know if I had surgery and had a cast I'd be moaning and groaning like a little baby:) We are so thankful for all of the prayers and cards that have been sent our way. The cast will be taken off June 5, so we are trying to figure out when we will be moving. Stay tuned for more pictures!
