Kate's dental work went well. We had to be at the hospital at 6:45. UUUGGGGHHHHH. I am not a morning person. Ryan went with me to help if needed. Kate was very brave and only started to whimper when the dentist came into the pre-op area with his surgical hat on . She can tolerate scrubs, but those hats set her off. She was wheeled away in the same wagon as the one that carried her to heart surgery. (I took pics but forgot to bring the camera card to the main office where I am typing this.) A few hours later, the dentist came out to report that her teeth were better than they had hoped and they had not done any root canals or extractions! yay! She had a total of 10 cavities. They filled seven and capped three teeth, due to rot around her gumline. She is quite proud of her 'silver stars' and shows them to everyone. She again did not sleep off the anesthetic 'for hours' as they said she would. She woke up immediately and started freaking out. She saw her IV and hand splint and I know she thought she was in for the long haul. She calmed down when we were discharged and she was sitting in her stroller. Her only mishap was barfing into my hand on the elevator (while I was fishing around in a bag for her little barf thingy). The people on the elevator were
We are currently at my parents' cabin 'Up North.' If you live in Michigan, you know what that means. The 'cabin' is actually a log home that is bigger than our first few homes. haha The kids love it! We are hoping to swim in the pool here but so far the weather is FREEZING. It was 57 last night after dinner!
I can only get internet in the main office, so I may not be online much. Next time I post, I will try to remember my camera card.
Thank you so much for the sweet comments that so many of you made on the blog about Ryan and for those of you who emailed your sweet comments to me. You have NO IDEA how much it blesses me to know that you care and that you will pray for Ryan.
Oh...and I keep forgetting to post this...we have a moving date. (sob) The packers are coming on the 20th of July and we will probably be in the Boston area by the end of the week. I feel totally numb at this point - which is typical for me. I am usually fine until things are over and then I tend to get emotional. I am very sad about leaving my family, but I am trusting that God has a GOOD reason for moving us there and am trying to look at it as another great adventure. I hear that they are having no summer this year and I tell ya....they better get it together before I get there!! hee! We want to go to the beach!
