A Big Week for Sarah Kathryn

During Sarah Kathryn's annual well check up the doctor commented on how huge her tonsils were.  The next day was her dentist check and he said the same thing.  So, I made an appointment with the ENT who said they needed to come out.  They were infected at the time so I waited to schedule the surgery until he could look at her well tonsils.  They were still giant and he said she probably had sleep apnea and it will become a dental issue.  

He said removing them may help the afternoon fits she throws simply because she hadn't had enough sleep.  We shall see.

It was the second day of school so Amy picked them up for us.  So thankful for good friends!  Neil got to the hospital right after SK went back for surgery.  Pops was there with us, too.
Here she is all snuggled up and ready to go back.
We were excited that Chris was the anesthesiologist and we saw our nurse friend Maggie there too!  It felt good to be in great hands!  Dr. Pou came out about 30 minutes later to let us know how well she did!  He said her adenoids did have yellow gunk all over them so she will most likely get fever.  Her tonsils were huge and took a little extra time for them to come out.  She was a trooper!

We got home and our girl went right to sleep on the couch!

She was up and totally fine and happy about 2 hours later.  She had some special visitors who brought over popsicles, Nana and Granddad sent pink flowers and a balloon, and Catherine even brought over a whole bag of soft foods!  What great friends!

Catherine gave her a coloring book and Jill gave her this balloon.  It takes talent to color while holding a balloon.

Her sweet friend Camilla came over to see her which was so sweet!

Sister even got her teacher letter!  She will be a Jungle Friend this year!  In the same class as Camilla!

We even added a new member to our family!  Meet Doug Heffernan Lewis! (if it's a girl it'll be Carrie Heffernan from our favorite show: King of Queens)

This girl is SO HAPPY to have this OUTSIDE cat.  I want this cat to be outside only.  

We've been living on house arrest so we've found a few ways to keep ourselves occupied.  I paint nails and blog and she gets her nails painted an watches TV!

During the same week, my dad had neck surgery!  This has been a huge week!

This girl and this kitten!  Goodness!

Uncle Mike came in to help Dad recover and SK couldn't even believe it!  She loved seeing him!
