The (Hopefully) End of Day 1

Well, I have no pictures for this quiet update, but the girls are at the hospital and hopefully getting a little shut-eye. Mary has faired MUCH better than I had expected for surgery day... (Aside from a little Linda Blair-esq tendancies in recovery, but who can blame her really??...)

After all is said and done, Mary had calmed down (mostly) and was drinking apple juice from a little squeeze bottle a few times this afternoon/evening ... We put on some Elmo's World and some In The Night Garden and she seemed to keep some interest in the shows. No solids for our little machine for a while... Clear fluids are the mandate for today... We will see where Jello and such "semi-solids" fit into the healing regime tomorrow and the next day... :)

So, I will turn in this eve until tomorrow when I try to hurtle back to the hospital to relieve Joyanne (If Mary will allow it...) Until the morning... Thank you, Thank you very much... for all your well-wishes and support for our little Elvis. Tune in for the morning show :) ...

C & J & S & M everyone who has helped along the way :)
