She was very calm in pre op and took things in, asking questions when necessary.
But, she was so trusting, didn't even flinch when they had to draw blood.
And the God thing, we just so happened to get an amazing life coach who had been to China as a nurse and worked with Show Hope...so she knew how to talk and act with Gracie. And when it came time to go to the OR, our big brave girl asked this nice lady to walk with her....and she did.
She also came back after and prayed with me. How amazing is that??
Grace's surgery lasted only an hour and a half, but it was a long hour and a half...
The doctor came out and spoke with us~ and he told u he DID take her tonsils and adnoids out....sigh~ Not sure why he did this and without telling us until after the fact, especially when he had said he wasn't going to do it~
We went back and she was not a happy camper, she was in a lot of pain and just wanted her mama to hold her and by gosh I didn't care about all those wires or the beeping going on, I picked up my girl and rocked her to sleep.
We do have pictures of her after surgeyr and in her room, but for her privacy I am keeping those off the blog~
She did have a rough go of it in the room. I spent the first night with her in NICU, Kerry the next in a regular room. The third day they wanted to keep her another day, but we know our girl and knew she would do better at home, with her normal routine and her own bed. So we skipped out of there and came home~
And we were right, she is drinking fluids. (even though it is only with big sis and whiel having a tea party)
She is getting the rest she needs and will recover fully given time.
