It is official, my friends! We get to go home today!

Pain control is MUCH better since we made a little tweak yesterday. The nurse talked with the peds pharmacist and let him know that she wasn't getting adequate pain coverage (I was, slightly, concerned that she was still having enough pain to require narcotics...but we need to keep her comfy.) with what she was they increased the dose of her Percocet to one full pill every 6 hrs vs. 1/2 pill every 4 hours.

Just what we needed...well, that and a little something else...

After talking with one of the nurses up here, I decided to ask for a pediatrician consult yesterday.

Best move ever. I have been very pleased with the care our surgeon has been giving us, but why not have two minds looking over her, right?

Well, the pediatrician that happened to be on was a female (I don't think this would've been caught with a male)...AND, she discovered that poor Belle had a little something going on that girls get when they're on antibiotics...


Poor girl!

So, they treated her, and already she is having less pain (she was having some pain associated with peeing...)!! Praise the Lord for a second set of eyes! (Although, I still feel like we hurt our surgeon's feelings...doubt that I actually did, but I can't help but feel like he maybe thinks we don't trust him...)

One more dose of antibiotics this afternoon, and we'll get our walkin' papers!

It's gonna feel sooooooo good to be home!


  1. Praise the Lord!!! I've been following Belle's hospital stay. Been praying for you all!

  2. Don't feel bad! Sometimes people who are close to the situation for awhile see things with a narrower focus! I'm sure your surgeon is just glad that she's being taken care of! I'm so excited that you guys are going home! Yay!! I'll keep my prayer hat on though, that she keeps making a good recovery and that there aren't any funky bumps in the road for her! Hugs! You guys are troopers!

  3. Woo-hoo!!!!!!!!! So happy for you and your girl!!!
    Will keep praying for her recovery!!!

  4. So glad you are going home and that she is continuing to improve. Praise the Lord!

  5. Yeah!!

    So happy for you both.

    Yeast infections are aweful

    hang in there

    that is all

  6. Hallelujah! I am so glad your baby girl gets to come home today!

  7. WOOHOO!!!! That's awesome news!

  8. Yay!!! Enjoy your night back in your own beds:)

  9. You gotta go with your gut. The important thing is that she is doing better. Yay!

  10. party, party, party woo hoo. how long will she need to stay out of school to recover

  11. So, so happy for you! And good call on the peds consult. Yeast infections are the absolute worst!

  12. Aw poor baby, its so hard when they are sick. Glad she is feeling much better.

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
