A Better Day
Dear angels, you are keeping us all on track and in hugs and love! You make a world of difference!!
Julia had a tough day yesterday as we lead up to her surgery. The
surgery as you know showed a ruptured appendix, but we had a great
surgical team to take care of her. After surgery she gave us quite a
scare as her blood pressure did a real nose dive. They pushed fluid two
different times to bring it back up. A very scary time! But our girl
rode it out until they got more pain mess going which helped big time.
She slept as did Carrie and today just had a couple of doses of
morphine. The great thing was Carrie was able to hold her for over an
hour and a half and they both loved it. Krista, Carrie's good friend
flew up for the weekend and stayed and held Julia for a couple of hours
while Carrie went home to go to Amanda's school program. Glen's dad was
also there and Glen got back tonight. We love having so much love
around our little sweet pea! They also worked on having Julia try to
sit up today which was quite a hard job for her but as she relaxed she
got a bit better! Yeah we are making progress! I am missing being
with my girls but am happy to be home with my boys! I will be planning
my days on a day to day hour to hour game plan! No boredom here! I love you all and appreciate each and everyone of you and each and every thought and prayer! You are magnificent! Love and a wonderful night as we begin advent tomorrow! Love Grammie Jen
