Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Surgery

We arrived at the hospital at 6:30 this morning.  We were supposed to be there at 6:15 a.m.  But, since they never take anyone on time, I thought I'd be okay.  But, I was whipping us around the parking garage rather quickly when Ivy said, "Mom, we're going very fast.  You might hit someone."  I'm just a very punctual person, and did not want to be too late.  Once we checked in.....we waited, and waited.  Then after we got checked in, we had to check in to another place.  Then we waited....and waited.  It was all so interesting to Ivy.  Once we were taken back to get her dressed into those lovely hospital gowns, she started feeling defenseless.  I tried to make light of it all, but she was not having any of it.  Then we prayed right before we went back to the Operating Room.  She broke down and started her silent crying.  I felt so sorry for her.  I was dressed like the doctor with the full gear, hat, mask, slippers.  I don't think she liked that too much.  Once she was put on the gurney and given some gas, she was gone.  I left to do some work on prescriptions, and the doctor did his thing.

I was in the cafeteria when Dr. P. showed up telling me all went well even though it was a difficult procedure.  Ivy was still in recovery, so I headed over to the pharmacy to get her prescriptions.  Once there I received a call saying she was in her room on the pediatric floor.  I walked into the room to find her sucking on a Popsicle watching Dora the Explorer.  Later on, she decided to play Play Station.


Her face is very swollen on one side and slightly bruised.  She has stitches coming out of her left nostril.  Her left hip is all bandaged up from the bone graft, but she is doing very well.  Ivy has a constant drip of blood coming out of her nose, but it apparently bothers me more than it bothers her.  Dr. P. also pulled the other front baby tooth, which was loose.  Ivy did not even know it was loose?  How can that be?  We got home around 5:00 p.m.  Ivy had some broth, took some meds, and is now sleeping peacefully in my room.  She's a trooper.  Thank you, everyone, for your prayers.

I'm sure I don't look this sweet when I'm asleep.
