So, we are home. That means that Reagan's surgery was quick and successful this morning. We started the day at the hospital at 5:30am. Well, I started my day at 3am because I HATE the night before surgery. I am so stressed out at the possibilities. What if? I decided to be positive and get up and pack up our things in hopes that we would be able to leave today with both of our babies. I guess that positive attitude and a lot of praying worked. She is totally remembering more each time she goes back and my heart breaks. She asked a nurse if they were going to mask her before they let her take a nap. She told them that she did not like it! We have never even talked about that so I was shocked when she asked them. After the procedure, she came back with a pink cast on her arm and a purple one on her leg. Very stylish! She has had bad dreams most of the day. She was in a lot of pain earlier, but we are trying to get in front of that with medicine. I am so thankful for the prayers. We are so happy to have this procedure behind us.
She had such a great time at the recital! She is such a little ham and we all enjoyed watching such a brave little girl overcome so many obstacles and just have fun dancing! I think most of us cried the entire time she was on stage. Lots of memories rushed through my mind while she was up there. I do love her so much.
Can't forget my favorite little man! He has been a really good big brother throughout all of this. He even enjoyed the recital a little too!
Last week, he had a slice of watermelon in his lunchbox (his favorite). He ran outside after he got home from school to plant seed that he saved. He took care of his little seed with TLC and water. The second day, I saw him outside pondering something. He came inside to ask a question.
Cam- "Mom, do you think we could get even more seeds, maybe from different vegetables and fruits?"
Me- "Yes son, why?"
Cam- "I think that I will make a garden and plant a lot of fruits and vegetables."
Me- "That sounds like fun."
Cam- "Can you find a place to take them so we can give our food that we grow to people that don't have any food?"
Me- "Yes son, I think we can do that for sure."
Wow- I really love my children. Rick and I are so very blessed.
