Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

I don't like to brag about myself very often but I am a pretty amazing little girl if I do say so myself! Just a few days post surgery and I am back on track. Last night I slept just like I usually do - from about 8 pm to 6 am. I woke up happy and ready to play. I saw Lucille coming up the driveway this morning through the office window and I was so excited to see her - legs and arm (and cast) moving all around! My parents stayed close today to keep an eye on me but not to worry - I was back to my regular nap and play schedule. You would never know I just had surgery two days ago! My parents also needed to meet with Sherry from my nursing agency to go over my paperwork now that I am back home.

I was looking forward to Friday when I was supposed to get my cast off but Mommy got a call from Shriner's today. I guess they really want me to have my cast on closer to 6 weeks than 4 weeks - so my appointment has been rescheduled to October 6th. Bummer! At this point the cast really doesn't slow me down much so another week and a half with it on shouldn't be too bad I guess.

  1. I was hoping to see the new hand soon, but I guess we'll all have to wait a few more weeks!

    Glad that you're already back to normal, hopefully your routine rubs on to Jackson and he will resume his normal sleeping schedule!

    Love you!

  2. Peyton,

  3. Hi honey,
    How cute you look in your latest pictures! I can't believe how light your hair is getting,and how as you are getting older you look more and more like your mommy to me.
    We're glad you settled back into your routine so easily.You are really a remarkable little girl, and we are all so proud of you!
    Hugs and kisses,
