We learned last time that because of the lighting and glare from the tank walls and my general lack of photographic talent, most of our pictures from the aquarium turn out pretty terrible. So this time, I took quick videos along the way with my phone. Here's a short video recap of some of our aquarium visit...
Judging by the extremely quiet ride home, I'd say the kids had fun...
Thanks so much to Meme and Papa for the extremely thoughtful gift. The kids had a wonderful time and Angie and I had a blast watching them enjoy the day. It was the perfect way to take our minds off the hectic week and have some family time.
As for Madelyn, she's still doing great as long as no doctors are trying to cut her cast off or put a new cast on or touch her or stand near her (Don't worry Grandpa, we haven't told her you're a doctor yet. You can still expect plenty of Maddy hugs.). We had a follow-up appointment today that went well and the surgeon decided surgery tomorrow is still a good idea. Her surgery is scheduled for 11:30 but we have to get there at 10 to start the whole process. There are still a couple different options for how the surgery could go once they are able to get a better look at the finger with the stitches out and the tip taken off so we won't know how long it's going to take or exactly what they're going to do until we're in the middle of it. Honestly, I think the part Madelyn is going to hate the most is that she's not allowed to eat or drink anything until after surgery. Madelyn likes to eat or drink something pretty much all the time so her not eating from 6 PM tonight to sometime tomorrow afternoon is going to be extremely difficult. Wish us luck in the waiting room as we try to fill out paperwork and mentally prepare ourselves for what's to come while also trying to calm a very hungry and thirsty 15 month old.
Thank you again to everyone for all the prayers, thoughts and kind words. We'll make sure to update as we know what's happening. If it's not in the main part of the blog, it'll be on the right-hand side.
Hope things are going well after the surgery.
You have amazing, strong children!
Saying prayers for all.
Love, Aunt Jill
