Surgery for TInk.

Tink's surgery on Fri was a success. I was less nervous than I thought I would be. I think all the prayers helped. Thanks!

I had to get up at 3:30 to make sure we made it to the hospital before 6am. So momma was very sleep deprived. Tink was a little nervous that morning. Once we got to the pre-op room and all the nurses and the dr came in and talked to her she was ok. The anesthesiologist gave Tink the option of having me go with her to the o.r. until she was asleep. This made Tink feel much better.

When it was time to go back to the o.r. Tink decided she didn't want me to go with her. Hubbs and I waited in the pre-op room. The surgery only lasted 25 minutes total. The dr brought us out pics of Tink's belly. Looked good. No ulcers or other visible problems. Tink woke up smiling and asking to go to school.

We didn't let her go to school, but we did take her to breakfast. She ate like she was starved then slept the whole way home.

I was so proud of Tink. My baby is such a big girl.

Now we are waiting on the biopsy results to see if there is an acid problem in that belly.

Very glad to hear the surgery went well. Kids are such troopers and so much more resilient than we parents, aren't they? :) Hope you are able to get some answers soon.

What a brave girl! Even at age 34, I don't think I'd want to go into the o/r without my mama. Glad it went well.
