before and after

Today was the day to remove the eye dressing. Tessa had a walleyed fit!! I think she was just scared of what would happen and not that it hurt. It is no where near as bad as I thought it would be

Forgot to mention....

With all of the urgency in Tessa's situation, I totally forgot to mention John and his tonsilectomy...he came through the surgery great but didn't eat or drink very good so he got steroid shots every other day for a while. He seems pretty much back to normal just not eatting very good still...We will see if this helps with all of his sickness's. If Tessa has to have Chemo we will have to rethink the dev. daycare maybe...

Up Date on Tessa

I want to thank everyone for their prayers, thoughts and concideration during this time. Also, I want to thank Robin B. for painting!!
Tessa came through the surgery great. They did remove the eye and we will have to wait a week before we know if she has to have anymore Chemo. He thinks that she will but I am trying not to speculate until we get the results. It was pretty scarry that first nite after the surgery. Tessa was in alot of pain and Annie Grace who was along for the trip had some sort of virus and vomitted in the recovery room while Tessa was recovering....how crazy is that?Tessa is enjoying being home and Annie Grace is back to running wild on the farm (her favorite past-time) I am just plain tired and have tons of things to do...and life goes on.......

Day before surgery....

Today Tessa met with the child-life specialist who used dolls to talk to her about her surgery tomarrow. It was really a good thing as she seemed to understand the operation and what would happen. She is very bright and I knew that we needed to tell her before. I have Annie Grace with me also and I took them shopping at Target. They had a blast I am worn out!!
I will try to post tomarrow, her surgery is in the morning at 10:00am.

Here is Madeline , Annie Grace and Katie on their first day of swimming lessons ! They look so cute!
They were excited to go even though some are a little under the weather due to the strep throat issue.
