Poor baby girl is back in the OR right now---her left kidney is getting a good work over. She definitely knows the drill and started screaming the second we walked in the hospital. Other times she screamed: taking her weight, taking her temp., blood pressure--(yah right! good luck with that!), trying to listen to her lungs, when an anesthesiologist just LOOKED at her!...you get the picture.
Lets not forget when the nurses had to pry her, kicking & screaming, out of my arms (AFTER she had the so-called "happy juice"--yah, doesn't work!)...screeeeeaming "Mamaaaaaaaaaaa, Mamaaaaaaaaaaaa" the whole way back to the OR--while I sobbed myself back to the waiting room where Joe was sitting...Oprah would call it: "the ugly cry". This NEVER gets easier...it has only gotten more and more difficult.
But again, thank the Lord for medical technology---and the hope that this will be the last of Sav's surgeries...at least for a while. Sweet baby girl. The surgery will take approximately 3 hours and we will be in the hospital with her for 24-48 hours. Tomorrow she will be wheeled upstairs for another round of those horribly, icky kidney tests (VCUG, Radioactive Renal Scan, etc)--but she will already have a catheter and IV- so I'm hoping that will help a little.
Thank you guys SO much for your prayers and sweet thoughts.
