Kira's Big Day

Here is Kira with her doctor before the surgery.

Here's Kira taking her silly juice. She did not like the taste of that stuff.

Here's silly Kira - the walrus. We had to take about 30 pictures of walrus Kira because she kept insisting on more pictures.

Here's Kira post-op. If you've never been there - this is VERY hard to see when it is your little one. Honestly, though, I was so happy to see her that I barely noticed her appearance.

Kira and her new attachment...still during the recovery time. They were just about to move her from the recovery bed into the hospital room bed. She screamed and screamed when they moved her. Very heartbreaking.

I can't really add more to the pictures with narration so I'm going to leave you with these images. I also want to say that Kira is doing remarkably well. She loves to play and paint. Her only frustration is her inability to get up and move on her own.

I have tears in my eyes. It must have been had to watch her come out of the op. I am so glad she is doing well now.

Hey Mom

First off ~ I forgot to mention Doc is hot! Good choice to look after your baby

Second ~ the girl says thank you so much
she got a special package in the mail today and she loved it! She is going to use the small one for her mouth guard for field-hockey because right now it just gets thrown into the bottom of her gym bag. Not so hygienic if you ask me.

Oh such a sweetie. I understand. Two of my children have had minor surgery and been sedated. Nothing like what she's endured, but it does pull at your heart to see them like this.

I know how you feel. It's so painful to see our kids suffer. It broke my heart when my son suffered from a burn accident.
