We did NOT think that we would be home today...and that she would be as healthy as she is! We were scheduled for her second surgery yesterday at 1:30. Poor thing had her last bottle at 7:30 and we packed up and headed to the U of M Children's Hospital. It was all a little too familiar this time. BUT, I was a little more at ease knowing the routine.
The poor thing is just starving before heading in there! She just doesn't understand why we aren't feeding her!
We checked into the hospital at 12:30 and waited in pre-op until 1:30. During that time we met with the nurses, anesthesia, residents, and our surgeon. Everything was the same as last time. The paperwork was drawn up just as last time....scary to read because they put ALL possible procedures on there.
She is up to 10 lbs. 13 oz. Still a peanut for a 4.5 mo. old....but she is growing!!
At about 1:35 they took her back. Saying goodbye and good luck is the hardest part.
My mom and dad came down and brought Blake. We were so thankful to have them there!
We all waited together in the surgery waiting room.
In about 30 (!!) minutes the doc came up and said that she looked FINE! NO issues....he didn't even have to operate. AWESOME news!
SO, she was only in there for about 45 mins. and then Ryan and I were able to go into the post-op area and see her. She was very upset and uncomfortable at first. I think that it was mainly hunger!
She was able to eat and they have her morphine for pain. That really helped. She was groggy from being put under and sore from having a breathing tube and whatnot.
Within a couple of house we were headed HOME! Such an awesome feeling, especially after they had prepared us and reserved a PICU room for us. We had packed out clothes to be there for awhile.
It was great sleeping at home last night. Liv had a great night and has been great so far today. I am still in awe of this little peanut. She is such a trooper!
We go back again in 2-3 months for a follow-up...but NOT in the operating room...just in the docs office! HOORAY :)
I have to admit that before the surgery I tried to act strong and positive...but in the back of my head I was always thinking the worst....I just worried 'what if they get in there and the mass is back and bigger'....as a mother, I am sure that thinking the worst is natural...you can imagine how relieved I feel now!!

This week I lost 2.2 pounds this week for a total of 1.44% this week.
I have now lost 3 pounds during this challenge for a total of 1.96%!
**Overall I have now lost 13.4 pounds since Jan. 19th for a total of 8.18%
I am pretty darn proud of my loss this week. I hope that I can keep it up. I am now three pounds from being “free” at weight watchers, and 5 pounds from returning to my ww Lifetime goal!
This week I really worked on portion control. You really can eat anything you want...just in moderation. I also worked on not snacking after dinner. If I did need a snack I tried a zero point choice…fruits and veggies!
I still need to work on drinking more water. I plan on working on that this week. I also am going to track everything that I eat this week!
...until next week...
