“I only like the fun appointments!” Addison was not thrilled about our return to the hospital this morning. Even though we didn’t specify exactly what was happening – namely the IV needle in her hand – she seemed to sense it was not going to be a cupcake and ice cream kind of morning.
We talked up the post recovery Popsicles a lot. And the movies and popcorn when we get home from the hospital. Plus ice cream and cupcakes. And whatever else we could promise to make it a little better.
Sigh. I still hate that moment when the anesthetic takes effect and Addison goes limp in my arms. This time when I said, “I love you big girl,” she said, “I love you too momma,” as she clung to my arms. Now we wait.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
PS Hope everyone had a beautiful Mother’s Day!
