We are here and settled in to our home for the next 3-5 days. We have had a lot of nurses and residents in and out all day. Abby has been a trooper, as always. She has played and talked and ate. The only thing she is afraid of is the IV. The nurse tried to start an IV but didn't get it so we are waiting for the IV team to come start it. Everyone here has been so friendly and helpful. Abby, Granny, and daddy just went downstairs to watch "Hotel for Dogs" and eat pizza. We haven't really learned anything new. We missed Dr. Boop so we don't think we'll get to talk to him until the morning. That was pretty disappointing but we did get here a little later than we were supposed to. They checked the schedule for us and we will take her downstairs for pre-op around 11 am. Please pray for her, especially during that time! I told her today while she was scared about leaving for the hospital and getting an IV that God is like a daddy bird who keeps His baby birds under His wing. So He will protect her like a daddy bird protects his babies. She liked that. We had baby birds on our porch so I think she could relate easily.
"He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler" Psalm 91:4
