Update on Kenner-Bug

You all are so sweet for your thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement for my little Kenner-Bug. Her surgery yesterday went very well. We're glad it is behind us so that she can heal, and get on with her very busy 5 year old schedule ;)

So, you knew it was coming. An update in pictures.

Sweet little thing was all smiles. The nurse asked if she was always this smiley. Yep. That's my smiley girl.

She was in a LOT of pain on the way home, and I felt so bad for her. As soon as we got home she had 4 popsicles in a row {lol} followed by some Motrin. That {along with snuggles from her new stuffies and three bouquets of balloons plus roses} seemed to do the trick.

We even got to color a little.

And big sis, Sierra, did an excellent job as nurse. She made sure Kenners was comfortable and had everything she needed.


The surgeon called last night to check in {I thought that was very nice, btw}, and he mentioned that the swelling and pain would peak today. Crumb, I was sort of hoping that the worst was behind us. And true to his word Kenners did wake up at 2 am crying and very swollen. Poor thing could hardly talk. She is now sleeping {somewhat} soundly beside me, and we're looking forward to another movie-watching, ice cream-eating, snuggle-filled day.

Hmmm, that all came out a little more jumbled than what I had hoped. I guess I'm tired.

Yeah, that's it.

Glad to hear that the surgery wen well. I have my T&A surgery when I was 8. I remember I couldn't talk after surgery b/c I had an infection, so my parents gave me a little dog that would squeak. Every time, I needed something, I had to squeaker the dog! My parents were ready to throw that dog out the window! I hope the swelling goes down soon for her. If you have netflix, I recommend putting on Jack and the Bean Stalk on your instant cue. It's rated G, my kids laughed and laughed, it's a cute movie.
Enjoy the snuggles!

Oh, I'm so glad everything went well. Hopefully today she will not be as sore! It's so hard when are kids are in pain!

Have a wonderful weekend pampering her to healing, and spending some wonderful time together.

I'm glad the surgery went smoothly and I pray that her pains subsides quickly. I know it's hard to see your babies in pain, but she's strong (and so are you).

Who is that squeezed between y'all on the couch? Hahaha

I hate to hear she has been in so much pain. I'm so sorry. Hopefully she is on the mend now and each day will get better.

Bless her little sweet smiling heart.
I DO hope the worst is behind her now. I know you must be stressed too.
Relax and enjoy the rest of her recovery. I do hope she 'milks' it for all it is worth...I would. :)

So sorry that she had to go through this, but it sounds like she is a super trouper and doing well. yeah for a big sister who is sensitive to her and takes care of her!
