Chicken Nugget is home and doing well. She was VERY upset when she woke up and it took over an hour to calm her down. She kept saying, "I didn't want to have my tonsils out!" "I didn't want to have my tonsils out!".
The surgery went very well. She walked herself into the operating room, holding on to her stuffed animal, Snuggles. It broke my heart - but we both held it together. She was so brave. In twenty minutes, the doctor was in the waiting room talking to us. She did great - he said she'll be breathing so much better. Hallelujah.
Apparantly, the pain gets worse for the next day or so. Sunday is "supposed" to be her worst day. So we are just praying that it doesn't get worse. I appreciate your prayers and she continues to heal.
I'll update you again later!

Well, today is a big day in the life of Chicken Nugget. She is having her tonsils and adenoids out today. It's been a long time coming, and we're glad that it's finally here. We are to arrive at the surgery center at 10:30, and I imagine she'll be in surgery around 11:30/noon. If you would please pray for her today. She is hungry (no food since last night) and feeling a bit nervous. We trust that God is going to see her through this surgery beautifully. Thank you for standing with us. I'll post again tonight.
