all is well!

We're back from the hospital (a few hours ago, actually) and princess K is doing fantastic! She was a little groggy when she woke up but we got some juice in her, gave her a special toy from the hospital and she was happy again. In fact, when they wheeled she and I (me holding her in the wheel chair) down to the floor for discharge - she perked right up and says, "what is this chair?" - the nurse was howling laughing.

I realized once again how fortunate I am to have a family that is relatively healthy. There were other kids there with leukemia, another little adorable boy with a huge cyst in his neck. His parents looked horrified and scared to death, understandably, too! It's always an eye opener though when you see just how fortunate you really are.

Thank you all for your super sweet and thoughtful comments and wishes, it means a lot to me.

I'm so glad your princess is ok. I've thought about her often today, esp. when i hug my own princess and think of what you must have gone through. Thanks for letting us all know so quickly that she's ok. YAY !Hugs all around

Glad everything is fine. It's so scarey when our little ones have to go under. My oldest has done it once and so has the youngest. No fun.

I'm sorry I missed your post yesterday, because I surely would have kept you all in my thoughts, but hooray for all being well! Ya know... it's tough enough to be a woman sometimes, with that whole area. Poor girly for having it start so early.
