Brooklynn's Surgery

Dear Stephen,
When you told me you were scheduled for criminal court on the original date of Brooklynn's surgery, April 22, I was so upset that you wouldn't be there when your little girl went into surgery. You told me you would see what you could do about rescheduling it but you didn't think you could change it. I just couldn't imagine going through that without having you there with me. Well, I did it. Didn't want to, but I did.
Everything went as smooth as possible. She kept saying, "I want to go HOME! I want to go HOME!" before they sedated her and in the recovery room. It was so cute and heartbreaking at the same time.
I kept thinking if you were there you would be in the bed with her, holding her so close.
You would have been so amused. The nurse came in awhile after her surgery and was telling me she could have clear liquids, popsicles, etc. Brooklynn commented in the background, "I want a popsicle!" The nurse kept on talking and Brooklynn said very forcefully, "I'll tell you! I want a popsicle RIGHT NOW!!!" The nurse stopped mid sentence and went and got her one.
She is doing great now. She was very ornery yesterday which is a good sign. Today she is very active and playing.
Love you bunches!!

~Happy to see her big sister~
~So busy~

  1. Sierra keeps asking if I am sure Brookelynn is okay now. She keeps saying, "Is she still at the hospital?" I guess I need to come by and let them play so Sierra can see she is home and safe and feeling better.
