AOG Day 22

Today I’m grateful for knitting.  (Yes, I’m 25 years old).  While we were in the hospital for Karis’ surgery last week, a very precious friend (we’ll call her Denise 😉 ) asked me what I was doing.  I told her that I was watching Karis’ vitals monitor like it was TV.  She quickly explained how […]

Post-Op: Day 2

Hi friends, We survived our first full day after surgery.  Karis is doing well, but very, very sleepy.  I’m a little confused about why she’s sleeping so much even after stopping morphine.  Her only pain medication all day has been Tylenol, so I feel like she should be a little more awake.  The surgeons are […]
