Pictures of DD's stay at PCMC
Arriving at PCMC on May 1st. She is wearing her Lil' Red prayer shawl that Carol knitted for her. DD's attitude was much better than Mom's.

Pulling faces while jetting on the doctor's stool. We were waiting to meet the surgeon. DD loves to twirl and race around on the stool in every doctor's office.

Waiting for the anesthesiologist. This particular toy made siren sounds. DD loved it but it gave me a headache.

I didn't have the heart to take pics of DD in the PICU......

Right after DD was moved out of PICU and onto the 3rd floor (regular patient ward) I pulled out the camera and tried to cajole DD to smile for the first time since she went into surgery. This is what she gave me. DD did not feel like smiling yet....

A visit from DD's BFF. DD had forgotten her, but it didn't take them long to warm up to each other. Now DD wants to see the pictures of her BFF every day.

Our last day. DD insisted on getting out of bed to wait for the surgeons to make their rounds. I think she wanted to show off that she was feeling well enough to go home. She certainly was sick of staying in bed.

I'm so glad you posted pictures. In that first one I can totally see the resemblance between her and your husband. You've been so strong and been so blessed, keep it up!

AWESOME! Praise God! I can't believe she had surgery a week ago and is now doing so well. I'm so happy for you all. :)
