Thank you so much for all of the thoughts and prayers on Friday. Kate's surgery was successful and she is finally free of her central lines! She had a very hard time coming out of anesthesia though and we had to administer several additional medications to calm her down. After nearly an hour of complete hysteria, Kate finally "came to" and was back to her normal self - waving at everyone and telling them hi in a sweet little southern voice! She was very groggy this weekend and extra tired which I'm guessing was still from the anesthesia.
Alex's parents were in town this weekend which was wonderful! I was so thankful to have some extra help so I could rest and Kate absolutely loved having her grandparents around! Kate played outside with her Bebe and had a blast! She is currently quite the fan of collecting leaves and especially loves big ones that have a big stem (is that what it's called?) to hold on to!
The most exciting part of the weekend was witnessing Kate's first bubble bath in 7 months! We've mastered the art of sponge baths since we had to keep Kate's central line dressing dry so it was very exciting for Kate to have unlimited time to splash in the bath! She had a blast Saturday evening and by then time she finally got out of the tub her fingers and toes looked like prunes! I am so glad that we can officially add nightly bath time back into our routine.
I hope everyone has a great Monday and a great week! We have beautiful weather in the forecast so I'm hoping to spend lots of time outside which I'm sure will mean lots of pictures to share!
