Well, I will tell, you, I had quite the day today. I had a great nights rest, then Mommy fed me at 7am (so I am told, I'm not too good with numbers yet), and that was great, but for some reason she didn't want to give me any more that morning. I cried and fussed and fell asleep and did all my usual tricks to get more milk, but mommy must of been having a bad day or something. Anyways, around 1:15pm, a lady in a funny green suit and hat came and got me, and then someone pricked me with something. After that, the room started spinning, and I can't remember much after that. They tell me that some old guy (hey, everyone looks old to me)made a cut in my head and stuck a valve and a tube in there (maybe playing hide and seek..boy, they're not going to find it in there), and ran the tube all the way down into my tummy. I can do the neatest trick of making this water stuff go down that tube. I already feel a little better, as my head was starting to feel a little pressure. Oh one thing I forgot to tell you, they sure like tubes around here, as they put one in my nose and down my throat ...yuck. When I woke us, I definitely wanted to get that thing out of there as it really was starting to bug me. Well, they took me us to a new room now called ICU (I think it stands for intelligent children undercover) and I have alot of new people running all around me. I finally got to see mom and dad, boy did I miss them...they sure do love me, I can just tell.. But I could tell that mommy had been crying some...maybe she got a tube stuck in her throat too. Finally, they took most of the stuff off of me and I am breathing on my own again...wow, does that feel good.
So, surgery went really well. The surgeon was pleased with how things went. Victoria has a little oxygen in the nose still, of of course pain medication, but is doing really well. The usual hospital stay after this is a couple of days, so maybe if all goes well we will go back home on Sunday. Already we can see a difference in her head. Hopefully they will get it regulated well and we can stay away from infections. Needless to say, it was a great day. The emotions have run the gamet, but we are doing well. Thank you all so much for praying for us. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of need. Blessing. Bruce
