Sweet Ashley Kate simply wore herself out today. She played so hard and so long that she couldn't keep her little eyes open. She was in her crib and fast asleep by 9p.m. I gave meds, flushed her line, cleaned her up and she snored through the entire process. I kissed her puffy cheeks and whispered how much I loved her and she still snored. That is one tired little lady.
The entire house is fast asleep and it isn't even 10:30. Dave is feeling a little under the weather and has gone to bed early. Allie has been at Pine Cove all week with her girl friends from school and she is exhausted. Blake had a hard practice in the rain tonight and he came home hungry and tired so he is sleeping too. I have to stay up until 2:30 so I can turn Ash's feeding pump off. She can't have anything past that time until she wakes up from the anesthesia tomorrow. She ate really well today and had a late dinner so I am hoping she won't be too hungry in the morning. We will be leaving for Tyler around 7. I started a movie hoping it will help keep me awake. Unfortunately I don't think its working. I seem to be yawning an awful lot.
I am anxious to get the procedure over with. If this works and Ash's eyes are corrected it will be so wonderful. I just can't wait to see how she will look. It may take a couple of weeks before we know if it works. Last summer her eyes were red and swollen for quite a while, but the right one turned out beautiful. She looked so different once it was corrected. I'm praying for a safe and successful procedure. Even though I have handed her over to surgeons more times than I can count it is still a difficult thing to do. I just have to remind myself that she is never alone and that I can trust Him to be there holding her when I can't.
It's probably going to be a long night. I will update and let everyone know how she is doing as soon as I can. Thank you so much for remembering to pray for her. I really, really appreciate knowing how much you love her. Good night. Trish
