My Amazing Baby Girl

Camryn had the first of many upcoming surgeries yesterday. Her ENT is going to slowly re-open her airway. Yesterday she did like a champ- he had to go in to open the airway again and stretch it just a little bit. In about 2 weeks she will go back to the operating room and slowly stretch it again. There is a little cutting involved, but not too much (we hope it continues to stay that way) Cami woke up a couple of hours later and was just as happy as usual- like she didn't have anything done at all. She is such a little champ! I am so proud of her. Her little lips are so full- I have very skinny little lips but Kevin has very wide full lips. She has my shaped lips, but they are full like Kevin's. They are so cute- just like the rest of her. She just kept making bubbles and sticking out her tongue. I was just watching her in awe. She also has a little blue orthopedic chair that OT uses with her. She was in there for a while yesterday. I wasn't there when she was in the chair I had to go and buy Kevin a new cell phone since his broke. Since he is so rough on phones- I just bought him the least expensive phone they had. So, a little flip-phone is what he got and it works just fine. We broke away from the hospital last night and went out to eat at Red Lobster. We put to good use our gift cards that we got in December. It was so GOOD!! I love seafood :O) I worried about Cami the whole time though which I figured I would. I was just a few minutes down the road but none the less, worried. I got a jury duty summons in the mail the other day, I called them and explained that I have a child in the PICU and they just need a letter from the hospital stating that Cami is there. I got that yesterday and I am faxing it to them in the morning and also mailing a copy because I want to be double sure that they get it. Cody is doing fine, I am so happy that he is so healthy because it would be entirely too much to handle if I had 2 little ones that were sick. I know that there are people who are able to do it though.
