...Yep, she SURE is. Savannah was SO BRAVE today- such a big girl. I wasn't sure how she would do---being so much older now. She can understand so much more about her body, etc. She still isn't fond of the idea of surgical intervention---but she weighs more now and can get more "giggle juice" beforehand, which DEFINITELY helped!
Sav got super loopy and didn't even realize that the nurse had rolled her out of the room while I quietly froze and "became one with the wall". If she "lost it"...she did not do it in front of me- yelling: "Mama!!!!! Maaamaaaaa! Why won't you get me? Why are you letting them hurt me?!!!"
Savannah loses it = Mama loses it
and that didn't happen today! Yaaaaaaay!
The hardest part was saying bye to Joe this morning- as we both teared up. It is KILLING him not to be here. :(
Thank God for my parents who drove in late last night and stayed with my bro- so they could be here for us this morning at the hospital. *(I would not let anyone step one foot inside our FLU INFESTED HOUSE)* And a special thanks to sweet Tempe and Rodney who stopped by to be with us today. You are an absolute blessing.
Here is Savi once we got to our room. OUT FOR THE COUNT! Lol
My bestie, Lizzie-poo, came to stay with me all afternoon. God love her. She has been at the hospital for every one of Sav's surgeries (and some of her icky kidney tests as well). WE LOVE YOU AUNTIE LIZ! You mean the world to me.
And here is the latest picture of Sav- will not let that balloon out of her site. Yep---this gal LOVES her balloons!
God love her.
She did not get sick- aside from one dry heaving incident after her long and windy ride up to her postop room- thank the LORD. (Sav, her Granna, and I have been genetically cursed with the severe postop nausea and vomiting gene).
Savannah woke up to watch TWO, mind you, TWO rounds of Tinkerbell- The Great Escape, per her request. Now, she is down for the count. Praying that she (and I) will get SOME sleep tonight.
On that note, I'm going to curl up here on this *oh-so-comfy* mattress and try to grab some shut eye. I know I'll eventually end up in her hospital bed with her, and that suits me just fine.
I love this girl, I do.
Savi Steece...my hero.
