Peanut butter sandwiches have been consumed.
Everything today was smooth. Darcy clearly wasn't overjoyed about being back at the surgery center, but she wasn't worried. She never asked for anything to eat or drink ~ until she woke up. Ian and I chatted for a while and then read a good deal in our books (his is one for work, mine is bringing up Boys by Dr. James Dobson ~ another post all on its own...). My sweet girl woke up quietly from anesthesia, asked for both Mommy and Daddy and then was a total sweetheart as she "came out of it." She complied with everything so well that it was decided she could skip the "no-no's" that she had to wear the first several days following surgery back in April. Dr. F was pleased with how surgery went. She remains hopeful that Darcy will be able to avoid having the drain implanted in her eye. Time will tell.
For today and the days following, my biggest worries appear to be how to keep a three year old girl with a three and a half year old brother and a four year old sister calm and quiet...
