First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who sent cards and gifts for our special birthday girl. I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who took the time to make her day enjoyable. Friday morning was a bit rough and I thought we’d just go downhill from there, but then the cards and balloons starting arriving and we were able to take her off the morphine drip, she was so happy. It was the perfect distraction the day after surgery.
We’re still waiting for her bowels to wake up, but she’s comfortable and in good spirits. We even walked around the unit a bit and she showed off her jumping skills for all the staff. EVERYONE seems to know her now.
Alright, on to the pictures! I haven’t even gotten all of the cards opened and hung yet! It’s just crazy!
