Lily is quiet for the most part. She is on rounds of Fentonol that keep the pain at bay. Even still, she sometimes opens her eyes and looks around the room. She'll catch our eyes and stare at us for a while as if to say, "This ain't so bad, Mommy . . . See what a big girl I am, Daddy?"
Once in a while she will stretch and make a little sound that is reminscent of a tiny dinosaur from Jurassic Park. It's cute in its own right, but we know it is a whine of pain and it is heart breaking. But Lily is our big strong girl and she is a hero to us! We just know she will conquer this and be home within a few weeks. Then no one can hold us back from spoiling her and holding her and waking her up from a deep sleep just to tell her we love her.
Goodnight, Boo Boo Baby!!
