Thank you for your prayers

The surgeries went well. God is so faithful and helped me to be able to go in with Vivian until she fell asleep. My fears instantly vanished. And she hopped up on the table no problem. Tim decided to go in with Leah because she was having a rough time with fear. It turned out to be a great decision since they had to restrain her and he does so much better with those types of situations. The surgeries were quick, each one only lasting about 20-30 min. The staff was AWESOME and came and got us as soon as Vivian was awake. She had a really tough time with the anesthesia. She was very combative and screaming. :( Before we could even really think about it, Leah was coming in, popsicle in hand. She did better with the anesthesia but did have a couple of bouts with stomach upset. We were able to go home within an hour or so of Leah being done. The recovery has been much harder for Vivian but still not even as bad as we were anticipating.

And I got the most wonderful anniversary present ever!! Tim got up with the girls and let me sleep. I love this man!!

Prayers please

Vivian and Leah are having their tonsils and adenoids out on Mon at 7:00am. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated. I was completely fine until I went for the pre op appt and found out all the things that could go wrong and that we can go in with them while they fall asleep. I know they will be completely fine, but I can't watch them fall asleep like that. Tim said he will go in with them. I am praying that they surgeries will go as expected and that the recovery time will be minimal. The dr said that they could be down for a week or more. It just depends how on them.

Teenage Eve

Well, today is teenage eve at our house.

Meaning tomorrow morning our first born will wake up as a teenager.


This is turning out to be the hardest milestone for this mama's heart, yet. With many more to come, I am sure.

But there is a funny note to add.

I did the math and this will be the beginning of 17 years of being a parent to a teenager. Something to look forward too right?!?!
