Sara is home and recovering

Just wanted to let yall know that Lil Sara is out of hospital and we are working on her recovery...She is currently sitting on the couch eating mini pancakes and drinking Gatorade...(what else would she be drinking? Her surgery was done at Shands at UF, home of the Gators lol)

The discharge papers say she must drink a minimum of 32oz of fluid a day if she is refusing food...that seems to be A LOT of fluid for such a small person.

I did take a super cute post surgery pic of Sara and Daddy with her in her totally cute surgical hat but alas it is on my phone and I have as yet to work out how I am going to get it off of it.

Some of the sweet ladies from church have already been by to drop off meal for us and had some others from our church family surprise us to sit with us and pray with us in the surgery waiting room on Thursday...Feeling truly blessed as the hand of God has guided us through as a family.

Thank each and everyone of you that sent words of support and prayers this week.
Love and Blessings Kelsie

Kelsie, so glad that all is well after surgery. It's a relief having all that behind you, isn't it?

32 oz? Sometimes I have trouble getting that amount of liquids down myself - unless milkshakes count as liquids, lol.

I'll continue to pray for recovery!!! I'm with 'lil Sara on those mini pancakes...yummy! Hot tea sounds mighty good to me, gatorade...not so much.
My first meal after having my tonsils removed was garlic toast, fried chicken and hot chocolate. I remember dipping my toast in the hot coca then letting it slide down easy. Doctor told my Moma, "Let her eat anything she wants!" However; a few days later ice cream, popsicles and mac 'n cheese were what I lived on for days! HA!
Keep us updated as you have time. You'll have your hands full for about a week...then I want to hear that 'lil Sara is up to some cuteness!

Good to hear Sara is home and resting.We have been there with the Grand daughter when she was a wee one.She had a tube put in her eye,of all places. Evidently, the tear duct was not working properly. She was a brave little one,even when the little circle of a tube broke loose on one side and was sticking straight out in front of her eyeball,still attached on the other side.She wore it that way for a day or so before they could go back in and reattach it.She never rubbed it or fretted. She was a real little trooper,as I am sure Sara was,too.We're wishing her a quick recovery.

Aren't pancakes some kind of miracle food? :-)

Glad Little Sara is back home. It sounds like she is on her way to a good recovery and you have good support from your church family. It's always a good feeling to have someone to lean when things just aren't their normal routine at home. Keep us posted.
