hospital pictures

hi love=)

here are some pictures from the hospital last month. you can see that before surgery you didn't feel great but were doing ok. then after surgery you can see pretty clearly your progression of feeling like poo to feeling smiley and pretty happy again. i wish this didn't happen, but it did. so here are some pictures so we can talk about it later=) i'm leaving out some of the ones where you look so pitiful because it breaks my heart and i'm scared of looking at them right now.

love you sweet angel. i'm so glad you're feeling better.

on our way to the hospital. you're quite the trooper.

watching tv with daddy in your hospital bed.

playing tic-tac-toe.

back from surgery. you were such a sweet angel=)
here's the video from when you got back from surgery. i think i already showed it to you, but here it is again. it makes the organizational part of my brain very happy to put the hospital video with the hospital pictures=)

surrounded by your animals=)

on post-op day #2 we had to make you walk up and down the hallways to get all the junk out of your chest and get your bowels moving.

you hated it! but it worked.

you realized walking wasn't so bad once we got to the playroom!

playing piano with mommy

this picture is just to highlight the hair-do=)

dr gully gave you a new doctor kit. this is you listening to daddy's heart=)

these glasses are by far my favorite part of the doctor kit=)

what a cutie.

i couldn't get enough of you in the glasses.

you finally got to eat real food!!!

sweet max came to see you=)

i love how you always cross your legs=)

home from the hospital. playing on your new elmo airplane that gigi gave you. you got LOTS of surprises in the hospital to the point that christmas seemed to come early for you. but then you got christmas all over again on actual christmas. i think you deserve it.

trying to give me a thumbs up. with spaghetti all over your mouth=)

i love you my sweet brave girl.

She's awesome and so big! She's beautiful Katie and so perfect. I'm glad she's home and recovering.

I LOVE the pics! My little Katie (Gert here on the web) ALWAYS crosses her legs... such a lady.

Cute little story - we have her school conference next week on Wednesday morning. She said to me "Mommy, we have to go to school EARLY next Wednesday because we have a MEEEETING"

I fully expect her to show up in a suit with a steno pad.
