Oh, what a different story this is compared to all of our previous surgeries! I had the priviledge of going back to the recovery room while Mark and Grandma Diana waited in the lobby. The long walk down the hallway was quite a bit shorter knowing that Tessa was going to look the same as she did when we brought her in. Knowing that I could hold her close to me was such a relief! She's been doing great! (Granted she has been pretty drugged up.) We had the best nurse ever in the recovery room...she treated us all so well. Usually, only one person is allowed to be back there with Tessa. This time, however, we were given a private room, a recliner for Tessa and me, and 2 other chairs for Mark and Grandma, AND a DVD player! What a blessing. :)
We are now in our room...4 hours later...and Tessa has been in and out ever since we got her a bed to lay in. I brought her own pillow from home and she hasn't moved since she laid down her head. She really is such a precious gift! Such a champion!
Thank you all for your prayers...keep 'em coming, the morphine doesn't last forever!
A huge praise has been how easy breathing has been for Tessa, yeah!
