Sorry...no pictures tonight as I am in the hospital tonight and haven't found a way to do that yet.. Ella's surgery to put her permanent central line in was successful and uneventful. This line will allow access to a vein to be used for administering of drugs as well as for blood draws so that they won't have to do anymore needle sticks....hopefully!!! Poor Ella had to go all day without food. Her surgery was scheduled for 3pm which meant no food since her bedtime bottle the night before. Unfortunately, the surgery didn't actually occur until 5pm so her first bottle of the day was actually dinner!! I was waiting in the waiting room when the anesthesiologist came to get me. I had to laugh when we were walking back to recovery and I asked him if she was awake yet...he said "OH YES SHE IS"!!! Apparently, she was causing quite a raucous back there. That's my girl!!! She seems to have recovered fairly quickly and aside from being tired and hungry, looks pretty good! She is soundly sleeping now and I am praying that she stays that way all night!!
I have a request of all of Ella's little friends. I was thinking that it would be fun to decorate Ella's hospital room with pics of her friends. I am hoping that everyone could send me a picture of their little kiddos. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can email you my address (I don't have the guts to post it on here....sorry!). Thanks for your help and thanks for all of your continued prayers and comments....I just love them!!
