Surgery Update

Reed's surgery went well. Dr. Hunt said it was a good thing to get those tonsils out of there.
She was really nervous this morning, but stayed in good spirits. The only time I thought she was going to cry was when I had to leaving her in the holding area, but she stayed brave and didn't make a peep. Believe it or not, I didn't either. She woke up well from the anesthesia and was a good little patient. Allie was glad to see her and kept rubbing her forehead. The nurses were so nice to her and Allie. When we left, they let Allie ride in the wheelchair with Reed out to the car. We are at home now. She is trying to sleep while I am trying to keep getting sips down her. Lots of slushies today!!
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers!!

ETA: Sunday night I was talking to Allie about Reed's surgery. We talked about how she needed to ask God to watch over Reed. She said that she didn't need to do that. She went on to explain that God and Jesus live in people's hearts. I said "Why not ask God then to watch over Reed?" Allie replied, "Well, if God lives in my heart then I don't have to ask him, only if he lived outside of my heart."
I thought that was so sweet and such great insight from the 5 year-old. If only we all could remember that God lives within us and wants to watch over us.

Oh good gosh, Robin!!! I totally forgot that her surgery was TODAY! Thank goodness it wasn't MY kid's surgery, huh? I'm sorry I didn't call, then again, I guess you were busy playing nurse, huh? Glad it went good for her!! Hope she heals quickly!
