My not so favorite martian...
They put her in a recovery room and said when she started to wake up they'd call us back. This made me angry, I wanted her to see me when she first woke up, not some scary nurse. It took her a few minutes and books to really wake up once we were able to see her. She had a fat lip from the breathing tube and instruments, she had red dots under her eyes from the blood vessels/coughing so hard, she looked exhausted. Within 10 minutes, she was herself again. Coloring with her left hand (right had had the IV in it). We had to wait 2 1/2 hours, then she needed to eat a Popsicle before they'd let us go home...she got 3 of them, then didn't want to go home! She never really complained of a sore throat, unless she had an eye on another Popsicle.
Thank You God, Dr.'s, Nurses at Good Shepherd hospital for giving me back my daughter safe and sound!
All this and we come home to Matthew who has a 103 fever. Welcome to parenthood!
