A very quick update!

I am sorry this is so brief, but there is no internet access in the room and I literally had to go outside to a courtyard to pick up a signal. Scott is with our sweetie as I quickly type this.

The surgery was successful! Poor baby has thrown up 3 times and is still in quite a bit of pain. Please continue to pray for Anna Grace as she really is feeling miserable. But I am praising God that all went very well. I do have a HUGE praise report. Are you ready? When we got into the recovery room (they allowed us to be the ones to wake her), the nurse asked her if she wanted to stay in the bed, have Daddy carry her or Mommy. She looked at me then looked back at the nurse and said, "Mommy!" I of course tried to fight back tears! It was heaven holding her and letting her know that I loved her and that I would not leave her side.

I, unfortunately, brought the wrong camera cable, so I can't download pictures, not that I could anyways because of the internet.

Thank you again for your prayers, email, scriptures and comments!!

Much love and I will post from home tomorrow.

PS No TV in the room....so no clue on what is happening with the elections!!! UGH! I know it's in His plans.

UPDATE 7:05 P.M.: My techie guru (sweet hubby) was able to get me a signal on my laptop if I sit very still in the far corner of the room by the window, with the laptop a little elevated! Hey! I'm not complaining. Also, the wonderful nurses here at Shriners brought me a small TV that gets local channels, so I may not watch a play-by-play of the elections, but I'll at least be able to watch the 11 pm news! Wooohoo!

My beautiful princess is still throwing up, but her pain level has gone down a lot! She's really doing well and I absolutely know that it's because of all the prayers. Thank you Jesus for your faithful prayer warriors and for answering those prayers. I'm off to get some more snuggles in before she is out for the night.

Ohilda-
I scooted over to your blog knowing I could fill myself with the thoughts from a SMART voter like you! I admire your courage to share the truth with those who are completely in the dark. I only posted once to my blog (today) re: the elections. Now we must all pray hard...harder than we ever have before.
I am happy to hear that little Anna Grace is doing well, and her surgery was a success. I know that is such a relief to you. I pray she recovers very, very quickly!

I am waiting until all is counted because they are just telling what the men are doing at this moment and I think showing re runs of speeches. God has it under control, won't help if I watch, I voted and I am praying..... for Anna Grace too.

Sara said...

So happy to read that the surgery went well. Sorry she is feeling miserable at the moment...poor baby...it will get better from here on out!! It is always the worst right after surgery...praying that she sleeps comfortably tonight. Just soak up each second with her :-) (like you're not already).

What??? no TV in the room?? After all the campaigning you did and now you don't get to see the results unfold(maybe you will be pleasantly surprised???..oh how I wish!!...oh well...you have a warm and snuggly little princess to hold. That's much better!!

Take Care!

Ohilda,

I am sooo glad you were able to post an update! So sorry she has an upset tummy and I hope that settles soon...that is scary in and of itself for little ones!

Celebrating your praise right along with you, my friend!!! : )

Stefanie said...

Wonderful news!! Praising God for taking care of your sweet Anna Grace :)

Michelle said...

I am so glad to hear Anna Grace is recovering well, although sorry to hear she is still throwing up. I was thrilled to read that she asked for you after surgery. Praise God!!!

Jewels of My Heart said...

Ohilda, I hope and pray your little one is feeling better and sleeping peacefully....
I have been watching the results and I am afraid that tonight could very well be one of the saddest nights in the history of the United States of America... When they show "Christians" gathered in churches praising God and cheering on Obama my heart hurts for our Father in Heaven.... I just can't understand how they can be so blind. Do they truly believe that God All Mighty, the creator of life is pro "choice".... so sad.....

Trish said...
