August 4th...Or Supergirl's Ordeal

So as I posted last, Supergirl had her little operation yesterday. We received a call at 4:30 a to tell us no need for a wakeup call..."Grandma, I'm on my way to the hospital, so don't call to wake me up. Are you and Grandpa going to come here?"

I assured her we would be on the way soon. We left here about 8 a and headed up to Florence to McLeod's Hospital.

She still hadn't been taken into surgery but we weren't allowed to go up to holding. Going into the cafeteria, we got coffee and a roll and waited for Michael and Anna to come down. They joined us at 10:30 to tell us that she was talking up a storm as they wheeled her towards surgery. Typical Arianna.

So, here is Supergirl, not a happy camper, but a brave strong girl who never cried once. I can't figure out why hospitals only have grape and orange Popsicles. Would banana be such a budget breaker? Or raspberry? Or cherry?

Thanks all of you, my pals, for being concerned about our little sweetie...her mom and dad enjoyed reading all your comments. She will be reading them for herself soon.

oh bless her! hope she's feeling better soon!

Way to go, Arianna!

Sandi, I know she was glad to have you there when she woke up. If I'd ended up in the hospital you can be sure my visit would have come with some nice present. Did you guys give her any get well gifts? Maybe you can find a recipe for banana popsicles so that you don't have to buy them.

Hugs! & Prayers for a swift recovery!

I'm glad to hear that all went well. Her colour sure looks good.. enjoy them popsicles!

Sally said...

Aw, bless her sweet heart!! I'm glad it's over though as I'm sure all of you are also!!

Take care, and God Bless you all. ((hugs))

Anya said...

Unknown said...

She looks fantastic Sandi! Banana is my favorite too.

Maggie May said...

So glad all is well. She looks a great colour.
Soon be home!

NitWit1 said...

YEA for popsicles. I even remember them at age 33 when I had mine removed. Nothing like 'em and yes, you ought to be able to have your favorite flavor.

Terri Steffes said...

What a trooper. I think you should be able to choose your flavor. Silly doctors!

Akelamalu said...

Ah brave girl, hope she's doing well. :)

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Banana would be great. Anything red wouldn't be good, though in case she should start to bleed, you would wonder if it was the popsicle or the real thing. You would think that someone would come up with some popsicles out of white grape juice, though.

My grandson wanted popcorn of all things after his ordeal!

Susan said...

So, sweet! Both her and you.

Pam said...

I'm so glad to hear that everything went well. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

larkswing said...

So glad all is well - and yes, cherry or banana would be a good addition!

Now, going backwards to read what I have missed ;)

david mcmahon said...

I hope she's feeling better, Sandi. I remember vividly the time I had my tonsils out!

Deb said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery! And I agree - popsicles of all flavors should be available! I love root beer or cherry! Take care.

♥ Boomer ♥ said...

So glad it's over for her!!! She's such a sweet little thing! I know you are relieved, too!!

Susie Q said...

Bless her sweet, brave heart. I know you are all so glad it is over...hugs to her, hugs to you too!

There is nothing so gut wrenching as this is there? Children shouldn't have to hurt.

Nancy said...

I still remember having my tonsils out. Not very much fun. Hope she feels better soon. And I agree, cherry should be mandatory.

i beati said...

Banan yum I'm on my way to the store..

Just think all pre school fun now Super girl !!!

Mickle in NZ said...

Arianna - I've never seen a grape flavoured popsicle here. I hope it tasted nice and cooled down your throat, and that now you are feeling much better.

Well done to your Mom and Dad and to your Grand Parents for being there for you.

caring huggles, Michelle and Zebbycat

Brian Miller said...

nice. glad to hear she is doing well...enjoy the popsicles! gramma can smuggle another flavor in right?

bj said...

Ahhh, bless her little heart.
My youngest g-daughter had her tonsils removed this summer, too...in June. It was pretty rough for a few days after she got home but she came thru with flying colors. Her sweet mama stocked their freezer with ALL kinds of icy treats!
I hope your baby is doing great now!

Suldog said...

Yeah, why no banana popsicles? Those were my favorite, by far, and I remember getting lime (which was OK, as I like them, but banana would have made me happy.)

NG said...

whoaaa.. brave girl... :)

Jeni said...

I'd say that obviously she is a spunky little chip off Grandma's block!
Glad to hear it's over and done and all is moving along nicely too now.

imbeingheldhostage said...

Bless her. Sorry I am late, but you tell Supergirl she's the bomb! You should smuggle in some better ice lollies for her ;-) (did you like that? I did it just for you--ice lollies).

Sally said...

Sure hope sweetie pie is feeling LOTS better by now. (((Hugs)))

Jamie Dawn said...

I'm so happy your little doll baby came through her ordeal okay. It's a big deal for a kid to go through surgery! And YES they should have more than two flavors available for those little ones who get their tonsils out.

My parents are coming in this Saturday for a visit. I plan to let my mom "borrow" and I do mean borrow your book. I think she will love the stories!


SandyCarlson said...

Brave girl. She knows she is loved. That is so much a part of courage. God bless the child. And bring on the rootin' tootin' banana Popsicles. Or, hey, let's do it up and have Italian ice. Bravery deserve a just reward.

jazzi said...

Ouch! I'm with you on the popsicles. Hope your girl is feeling 100% really soon.

Sandi,, Hello and joy your day. I read what they write is very good.
Thank you comment , Michael

myonlyphoto said...

Sandi wishing her quick recover. Never cried once, wow this good. My Matthew cries just looking at the doctor [don't have any idea why], and also his vaccination room [this one I know why]. Thanks for sharing, again hope she gets better soon, she is real supergirl. Anna :)

CatHerder said...

awwww..send her best wishes...and lots of icepops!

��Radio Mihalis Thalassis - Athens Greece said...

I wish health and perastika.Kalo night,Michael

San said...

As a kid, I had rotten tonsils. And then, I "outgrew" the condition. Still have the tonsils. They're still gargantuan, make doctors staring into my throat with their little lights exclaim, "Oh my, you have large tonsils!" But, miraculously, they never get infected any more. Not for decades.

Your little sweetheart looks so longsuffering on that pillow. May she mend soon. And yes, may banana popsicles find their way into hospitals. Bananas are the best. Even better than cherry. Orange-UGH. Nothing worse than artificial orange. Unless of course it's bad tonsils. Been there. Done that.

cheshire wife said...

Pleased that all went well. Hope that she will soon be home.

♥ Braja said...

Oh, bless her....what a face :)))

Unknown said...

What a trooper! Hope she feels better real soon! Have a great weekend. Blessings,

Beth P. said...

what a brave one!
popsicles are very important in these circumstances...and vanilla ice cream if I remember correctly!

Diva's Thoughts said...

Aaawww....bless her heart.

Dr.John said...

She looksw like everything went well. I'm sure she was glad you were there.

Unknown said...

She's precious, Sandi. I know you're all relieved it's over. What a little trooper!

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Hugs from Hadrian's Wall Country too! What a brave girl! Nice of your to post about it. It's always worrying when anyone precious goes into hospital. Glad she is OK.

Eleonora Baldwin said...

God Bless Arianna!
And a big pat on the back to the parents and grandparents too.

Smuggle in other flavored popsicles and some homemade gelato or granita perhaps...

Big hugs and a quick recovery to the brave wee one.

NeereAnDear said...

OH goodness .... seems I have missed a LOT.... poor baby.... having those tonsils out is the pits!!

I was 16 years old when mine were eradicated.... and my mother ...not grandma followed me around with a cotton swab and salt water... before that....so you have brought back many childhood memories for me....

As for the wee one.... I do hope she will do a ok and recover quickly... and that she gets lots of ice cream..... nothing like ice cream when the tonsils are gone.... she is a brave girl bless hear hert... never cried.... wow ... I was a bigger baby than she was a lot older one too...!!


The Victorian Parlor said...

Glad to hear that all went well:)!



Debbie said...

I hope she is continuing to do well.

Pondside said...

Brave girl!! I see lots of treats in her immediate future!
Why, indeed, are the popsicles always grape?

Unknown said...

Glad all is well (well except for the Popsicle selection).

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I have been praying for her. She is such a sweet and brave little girl...hugs...m.
