*update on Brookie...* :):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Before I head into the crafty things I want to share today...wanted to give an update on Brookie :):):):):):):):):):)  Her ear is still hurting A LOT ....and her 'brain' too.... but the doctor that took her tonsils said it is NORMAL to feel even worse in the second week AFTER the surgery as it is scabbing over and causing pressure on her ears... :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:( Soooooo he gave her some more tylenol with codine (SP?) and hopefully she will feel better soon! THANK YOU ALL for the prayers and well wishes for her... I seriously LOVE you all for your caring hearts!!! Here is one tired baby girl...after not feeling good all day :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

And here she is with some birthday cards she got before her surgery from her Aunt Cookie and Aunt Suzy and Uncle Richard! :):):):):) As soon as she gets better...she will be having herself a little shopping spree with her birthday money! This girl knows how to shop! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Thanks Aunt Cookie and Aunt Suzy and Uncle Richard! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
