Well it has been a long couple of days. MaKenzie did well right after the hospital, but once her Demerol wore off, she was one unhappy camper. I went into my room where she was sleeping the first night. I thought she was talking to me, but as I came in, this is what she was saying, "Oh help me Jesus, help my ear not to fall off, it feels like it will fall off and I am very afraid." I don't think it was necessarily hurting too bad at that moment, but I think she was literally visualizing her ear falling off. She had asked me if they sewed her shut and I told her that they didn't, but that they used glue. After hearing her pleading prayer, I thought about all the art projects that come home from school and how all the glued pieces are always falling off, I think she thought that since it was glued on, it was going to just fall off. It was so sad. I put her hearing aid on and had a little talk with her about it before putting her back to bed. It was so hard watching her hurt and she was coughing up blood for about 24 hours, it was rough, but the worst is over, I just took her pressure bandage off and it is looking really good. I just wanted to post one last picture of her in with her big ol' bandage on. She will appreciate it someday when she looks back at the pages of this blog. She looks like a completely different girl, her color is back, and she has been all over the place today.
