Well, I think we can all say that we are glad that today is over!
We got the little ones off to school and then I went to Walmart to get some Gatorade and jello for Cassi.
She could have clear liquids until 12.
Dad was up and studying and getting his uniform/suit ready.
We realized that we couldn't find his black tie anywhere!
So I made another run to Walmart.
Dad got all ready to go and headed out.
Before he left though, he gave Cassi a Fathers blessing.
It was a beautiful thing :)
He left and then Bubble had offered to take us to the hospital and hang with us until Dad got there.
She came and got us a little bit before 12:30.
We got all checked in and it wasn't long after we got into the surgery waiting room that Dad came.
So happy to have that test done!!!!!
He thinks he did fine, but I am sure he did awesome.
Those interviews are tough!
But he went prepared and I just know he did well.
So then Bubble headed home, and then she made dinner for our family.
She really is the best!
So we just did a lot of waiting.
And they came and talked to Cassi about what was going to happen.
They put an IV in her.
Then had a few others come talk to her.
Then the anesthesia people came to talk to her.....
And finally it was time to take her.
She was pretty nervous, but she did really good.
They had given her some 'happy drug' before they took her, and so she was pretty calm when they wheeled her off.
Dad and I went and got something to eat and then just waited.
The surgery was bout 45 minutes.
Things went good.
They sent stuff off for tests and such.
But we are pretty optimistic that it was some sort of infection/mass that just couldn't find it's way to the surface.
But we will wait and see what comes back from the lab.
That should take a few days.
When we went to see Cassi, she was still pretty loopy.
But she was not at all like I thought she would be.
She was really quiet, and very observant.
She would look around and stare at stuff, very intently.
At one point she lifted her finger with the pulsoximeter (sp?) on it, with the light, and really studied it.
Then asked all kinds of questions about it.
What it did, why it made her finger glow.
Kind of funny.
But she was so serious, and it was so weird!
I had to tell the nurses that she was not like that at all, that she was happy and hyper and bubbly.
And that this is probably the most she had ever held still!
Speaking of nurses, kind of funny.
So our nurse was Bob the builders wife!
Bob, the one who helped us build our house......the one that just came over the other day!
She was so sweet and took good care of Cassi.
We were finally able to take her home.
She kind of bummed me out being so quiet....made me sad.
Made me miss my Cassi :)
We got out of the hospital just in time for rush hour!!!!!
And it was bad.....but we made it to Walmart (again) to fill her prescriptions.
Doc wanted to get her on some antibiotics.
Then we got home and got her comfy on the couch.
And when the medicine was ready, I went back to Walmart.
Yep, 4 Walmart trips today!
Cassi had some visitors tonight.
Halle Dastrup stopped by and brought her a bag full of fun stuff and treats.
Jenni brought Ayden by to see her too.
That was fun.
And Avery stopped by.
Cass has such sweet friends :)
I sure hope she can get some good sleep tonight.
I hope we all can!
