Little Princess

Easiest way to update everyone.

The Little Princess had her surgery (decompression of the foramen magnum, forgive me if it's misspelt) on Monday afternoon.

I saw her Monday evening and she was fine. Cross and exhausted, blood pressure a bit high but doing really well, talking, breathing for herself (mostly - she didn't really like not having her Nippy), and wiggling her arms. She's in HDU, I have a bed in the luxurious Ronald McDonald House, and we'll both be on Robins ward once she's a little more recovered.

Had a peaceful night I assume, since no one called me; I am just about to grab some breakfast and then go and find her.

No phones in HDU so messages/texts/emails will be responded to later.

Thanks for all your prayers and support,

Thanks for keeping us informed big sis! Hope recovery is quick. Do you have to wear baggy red trousers etc in your room?

Thanks for letting us know, will continue to pray for a speedy recovery.

Phoned your parents for news as assumed no phones at hospital and that you had enough to deal with. Glad operation day is over, what a worry. Lots of love to Little Princess and hoping she feels well upon her recovery. xxx

Glad she is Ok and hoping recovery is quick. I had her down for the 8th as op day, but then hey what do I know. Keeping an eye open now for progress reports.

Big sigh of relief that it's over. Give her a kiss from us.

So pleased to hear this, thinking of you all. (She has beautiful eyelashes, doesn't she?).

In case you didn't catch it, Isaac was not about to be outdone by Little Princess, and opted for his own surgery to be done today! Not one we were expecting, either; but thankfully with good results.

Praying for LP's recovery and healing,
P.S. When I tell Doug the latest that is going on with LP, I still have to call her "Little Fish" so he will know who I am referring to. I hope she doesn't mind. ;o)
