“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
If you’ve read last week’s post, you might understand that I’m not really in the mood to write at the moment, but I thought I’d pop on to tell you how incredibly proud I am of Amy. She’s finally had her surgery last Wednesday and she was an absolute trooper.
The sedative that Amy got before the actual anaesthetic was horrific as it made her really emotional and confused, but luckily, she can’t remember a thing and is back to her happy self. In fact, she was pretty much back to normal as soon as we got back to our room. So much so that I caught her doing a headstand when I came back from the toilet. She’s crazy like that!
Forward three days and she was bouncing off the ceiling because she couldn’t wait to go to her best friend’s Pippi Longstocking-themed birthday. Of course, Amy insisted going in costume and if I’m being honest, I can’t imagine her ever dressing up as anything but Pippi Longstocking now. It’s her.
She’s brave and kind and I’m just so so glad that she’s feeling better. Her hearing has already improved dramatically. Whereas I usually had to leave the room whenever she was watching something on Netflix because it was just too loud for me, I was the one who had to ask her to turn up the volume because I couldn’t hear what was going on just hours after surgery.
Instead of her tonsils, they scraped out her adenoids, so we might still go in for a second operation at a later point, but we decided that we’d try to keep them for now as they’re so so important for your immune system.
