Olivia Update!!!

Thank you all for your prayers! I can't tell you how good it makes me feel inside knowing that
when in need, my blogging friends will selflessly pray...fervently...no questions asked! Please know that I do the same for you (I really do!).

Olivia is doing really great! The worst part for me has been dealing with the heaviness of this day with only about 2 hours of sleep under my belt. Both Amelia and Olivia were up a lot last night. Finally...I just got up. Are you aware that NBC will replay the Olympic coverage after midnight? I had no idea! I was watching downhill skiing at 3:40am!

My beautiful little daughter NEVER cried once! Not even when they took her off to the operating room in a wagon shaped like boat! They had given her something that made her a little loopy....but she still never fussed or cried.

It probably only took them about 20 minutes to do all three procedures! The E.N.T said he had never seen such big tonsils on a 4 year old! Anyway, she did fine in the recovery room too. When they wheeled her in, she already had a sippy cup of apple juice. Once she finally started to wake up some....they gave her a Popsicle. She ate the whole thing.....and then promptly threw it up. So, we changed her clothes and the bed and then started all over again with giving her fluids.
About an hour later, we were on our way home!

Since being home...she has perked up considerably. She has had jello, vanilla and chocolate pudding, yogurt, apple sauce and chocolate ice cream! She tells me that "nothing hurts". I don't know how long that will last. Once all of the numbing medicine and anesthesia drugs where off....she might be singing a different tune! Speaking of which.....her voice sounds different! They told me to expect this...but it's somewhat strange. My little baby doesn't really sound like my little baby anymore.

Anyway...as of right now (8:58pm), EVERYONE in my house is sleeping! I suppose I should be getting there too.

Thank you again for praying for us!

I'm glad to hear that she sailed right though it. I hope you both get a good night's rest :)

So glad to hear it went well. I remember when my niece had her ad's out--she sounded like a whole different kid. (And felt much better too!)
