Home again

We're home.

Peanut butter sandwiches have been consumed.

Oh, and a handful of cherries and a bowl of watermelon too.
Now it's nap time.  In fact I think I'll head there myself in a few minutes.  The day started early!

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...

I am so glad things went well and I hope you were able to nap too - those surgery days are hard. And if you come up with a way to keep your three still ... please share, ha, i have a feeling that info will be very handy in a few months. Wish we lived closer so we could help during these times.

wonderful news. We're so happy to hear the surgery went well. Darcy is a champ. Good luck with the quiet and calm - bottle it if you figure out how. Get some rest yourself and best of luck with recovery and pressure readings.
Going back a post or two - way to go Kylie! I was so impressed with her going under water. Hopefully you guys can get up here for a swim in the lake before summer is done and Kylie can show us her skills. Super.
Darcy - you're doing just super. We're proud of you.
Melanie, David, Indigo and Isaac
