This is going to be such an amazing opportunity for her!

She is feeling much better today. We went out for a little while but I could tell it was exhausting for her. We only lasted about 30 minutes at Target before having a melt down. We usually walk around for well over an hour.
She didn't eat much again today but really that isn't too unusual for her. She is still having a bit of pain but hopefully that will let up tomorrow. They told us days 3 to 7 is usually the worst so I took Saturday off from work so I could be with her. Hopefully it will be a good weekend.
Still no word on Maddy. I will definitely keep everyone posted.

Today was the big day. We got to the hospital bright and early at 7:30am and they took her to surgery at 8:30am. At 9:00 we saw the dr and he said the procedure went very well, and in a few minutes they would let us go back to see her. As soon as I opened the door to go to post op I could hear her crying. Her eyes were not even open yet and she was not very happy, they had just given her morphine. She cried and cried and spoke very little to us. We tried to get her to drink and eat a popsicle but no luck. The nurse came back and suggested we take her to a private room to recover. She said something about the other children bothering her but I think it may have been her bothering the other children. At 10:00 she was still crying and the nurse gave her Tylenol with codeine. At about 10:30 she fell asleep and woke up at 11:00. She finally spoke to us legibly. She drank some juice and the nurse took her iv out (by the way she never even cared that the IV was in her hand, all the talk about it worked!) And we were home around noon. She is still in a lot of pain, her mouth and nose hurts a lot. Poor thing.
She has sure enjoyed the attention though. She has eaten 8 popsicles, and some yogurt. Won't each much else because it hurts (I am thinking this is because she had a breathing tube). She loves the balloons from her sisters, a doll (named doll) from Uwa (Oliva), and a big Minnie Mouse. Not only that, her birthday outfit came and she LOVES IT!!!! But I wont show pictures of that just yet. I will just say its very Tabitha.
Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. I know T will have a speedy recovery.
I really hope this does the trick.
These pictures were taken before she went to surgery. She wasn't happy and asked if we could go home. She really did not like the socks they gave her or the hospital bracelets they put on her leg. She didn't mind the gown though but it was a little too big.
We just got her to sleep here. Her little face is swollen. She finally got chubby cheeks! Even if they only lasted a little while.

Tabitha is growing like crazy! She still weighs like 20 pounds but she is really absorbing everything. She loves the alphabet. About 2 weeks ago she picked out a K and hasn't stopped identifying letters since. She loves to read just like Maddy. She would let me read to her all day. She particularly loves all Dr. Seuss books and the 5 Little Monkey books. She just recently started drawing people and they are sooooo sooooo sooooo cute. I love them!

Abby is in a creative phase. Anything she can use to create she will try it. She has painted with water colors, made a foam ocean scene, write out phrases or pictures with buttons, made things with clay and drawn many great pictures for us.
She also go to try out for her school play and has two lines. She is going to be a cute cute frog!

Maddy is really enjoying 5th grade this year. We are so happy Maddy has made a new friend this year. He is great and really helps her stand up for herself and most importantly have a great time in life.

Some might say it is too early for a tornado but I say, this is Oklahoma. I have seen 80 degree weather at lunch time and snow by nightfall. This is the state where you see all 4 seasons in a week.
We were home and it was almost time to go get the girls when the sirens sounded. I watched the weather and got Tabitha, her friend and Lucy in the storm shelter. At one point the rain got really loud and I moved Olivia away from the vent. As soon as I moved her it stopped. I am thinking this is when the tornado passed by us. Soon after we got lots of rain and hail. We lost power also. About 4:00 I finally left to get the girls from school but instead of going home we stayed at Olivia's watching the storms than ate dinner and then went home about 7:30. The power had gotten back on about 6:30.
These are pictures I got when we drove around looking at all the damage a few days later.
This is a brick wall not far from my house. It looks like someone pushed it right over. The brick was hardly thrown out of place. In the right top corner is a trampoline that got crumpled.

We had a lovely snow and ice storm that cancelled school for 3 days. It was so cold they only got to go out in the snow the day it all melted so they didn't get to play in much. Tabitha had her fill only after a few minutes but the big girls stayed out for quite a while until they were frozen from their toes to their nose! Brrrrrrrrr.
