We've been a bit overwhelmed by having to do a second surgery with Danya. I've been scared of seeing her panic and not be her usual charming self. That morning she woke up in a great mood. I got quite hopeful. We packed a bag with some of her favorite things. When Nana arrived from Maui she brought another birthday gift of her Skipper Doll she's been asking for. Once opened she named them Courteney and Marlena. These are her 2 friends she calls her sisters. They live very close to us and their Mom and I are very good friends so the girls see each other quite a bit, infact Courteney is old enough she is Danya's babysitter thus she is Skipper. For her surgery naturally she had to bring her sisters with.
In front of her here you will see the ipod and speakers. Due to a major oops on my part this is the last time you will see this ipod. All moms do it, and on most days it's okay. When I went to buckle Danya into the car I placed the ipod and speakers on top of the car. Then as I was answering some questions I totally forgot it was there. The magnets int he speakers must have kept it from shifting too much as we drove the side seats and even quite a ways on the freeway. BUT when we had to make a sudden slowdown, thunk thunk thunk and off the front of the car it went. Only to be crunched by at least one car. Yes I stopped the car and went and rescued it. I now know what is inside an ipod. Thankfully we still have another ipod we can use for her movies and such as well as different speakers although none as nice. Oh well. It is the price we pay for stressful mornings.
When the child life specialist came down before surgery she left part of the sleeping beauty tea cart for Danya to play with when she woke up. Everytime we go to the hospital for a Danya's gift drop off she finds this tea cart and plays, so we had them bring it down.
Soo cute the Tucker dog. And then it was time to go home. She still had a great deal of pain meds in her system still and felt pretty invincable. She was very animated on the way home.
The rest of the day went pretty well until it was time to give her some more meds. Danya has a pain tolerance that is amazing. She would rather endure the pain than take the meds. We remembered the meltaways that worked so well last time and ran out to the store yesterday to get those. Plus she wouldn't trust any of the slushies I made at home because she figured I had hidden medicine in it, so we went a bought her a Icee. It's been an amazing adventure. To look at Danya you would never know she had surgery 3 days ago. She is rebeling against the liquid diet at the moment. She really wants a hot dog on a stick. When offered icecream she whines for real food. In another day or so we can start more real type foods.
Well that's our Tonsil adventure. I'm working on the last batch of custom order costumes whenever I have a moment.
