Today was a grueling day. It was the day of Lola's surgery to have the cyst over her eye removed. She has had the cyst since birth, and we have just been waiting on her to get a little bigger before we attempted a surgery--the risks decrease significantly after two years old.
So, after our little setback three weeks ago....today was the big day!
It was up at 5:30 to be on the road by 6. Lola's surgicenter was about 45 minutes away, and we had to be there by 6:45. We had told her several times that we were taking her to the doctor and they were going to make her bump go away.
It is the end of the day, and she is all cleaned up now. Her eye is still swollen shut (and is likely to be for a while) but she is in much better spirits. We actually took a long bike ride (she loved that) and a small walk. She loved swinging in her swing, too--but mostly, I have just held her today.
I'm okay with that. :)
I can't tell you how much I have appreciated all of the calls, texts, emails, and Facebook messages of friends and family letting me know that they are praying for little Lolee girl. We felt them today and she is doing as well as can be expected! I would appreciate it if you would keep her in your prayers, and I will keep everyone updated!
