We're Home!

After a loooong day of surgery and postop vomiting, Sav was feeling better and decided to wake up at 4am for some light refreshment. (In all of these pictures, Miss Thang is doped up and feeling great! Hilarious)



Yep, popsicles and pudding...a toddler's dream diet



Silly little Sav---how about some more sleep, baby girl? Its not even light outside.



Goofing around with Mommy later that morning---she LOVED her new doodle pad that Aunt Susan gave her!...wouldn't put it down.



Such a mess---couldn't make up her mind about what she wanted, so she ended up with about 10 stuffed animals, 11 books, toys, milk, snacks, etc in her crib for easy access...the little goober.



Did I mention that she was doped up?



Seconds later...out like a light! She would wake up and grunt at us every time we tried to pry her snack cup out of her wee little fingers.



By Saturday afternoon---Sav was doing SO well that the doc decided to discharge us that night (instead of Sunday!!!) Prayer works! I tell ya, she's a feisty one, this gal. Stopping to smell the beautiful flowers from our friends at Harris.



Broke my heart when she grabbed the keys and kept pointing to the window saying, "Out-sigh...out-sigh". SOOOOO ready to be home.



Before we returned home, Joe & I had sweet little visions of Sav and her brothers running toward each other with lots of hugs and kisses---hahaha, yah, not so much. I think Miss Priss got a bit overwhelmed.



Sav protecting her balloon. You touch--you die, Benny boy.



After a while, all was back to normal. Here is Ethan going in for a "kiss-kiss"



Lots of kisses to go around! Mama and her sunshine- Drew...his smile lights up a whole room!



We missed our boys!!! A huge thanks to Granna, Papa, and Aunt Susan for staying with the little guys this weekend. It was so nice being able to spend that one-on-one time with Savannah while in the hospital.


Sav woke up with some pain this morning, but is doing great. We have to watch her brothers carefully- so they won't fall on her or play rough with her. She will go back for a follow up in about a month and will have more icky kidney testing in about 4-5 months. So, at least we know Sav has a while to heal before surgery on her left kidney. Thanks again for all of your prayers and kind words!!!

That sweet little girl just melts my heart. There's something about sweet little ones sleeping too isn't there?!

I am so glad that Savannah is feeling better and healing. I have kidney stones and know that kidney pains are NO FUN! I will continue to pray for her and you as parents.

Give all of those little ones some love from all of us!

Glad y'all are home. I hope she'll do okay in the next few months and that the next testing won't be too bad.

By the way, what grade # was her reflux? My DD has grade 3.

Suzanne,

I am so happy Savannah is doing so well. I have to admit. I laughed a bit when I watched the video of Sav all doped up. Too cute!!! Thank goodness for prayer. Still want to meet the precious little ones. We test tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed. Oh! I was in Wally World today and came across a whole Crystal Light isle. I took a picture and will post it/send it to you tomorrow. It also made me smile.

Thinking of you,

Julia
