Thank you guys SO much! Your prayers really mean so much to us!
Katie did pretty well....she started off with having some issues with the anesthesia (lightheadedness,fainting feeling) but then she began some uncontrollable shaking (poor kid is EXACTLY like her mother..same thing happened to me when I given an epidural giving birth to her sister). We prayed and the COOLEST thing was that as soon as I said "Lord, we thank you that by Your stripes we are healed", literally her shaking stopped right then and there instantly! She said "Mom, that was SO cool!"
:D:D It was pretty awesome to see how God moved in that circumstance.
After that, she got really groggy pretty quickly, and doesn't remember me kissing her goodbye. He gave her a perfect peace
I, meanwhile, had my mini meltdown and waited for her to leave before I allowed myself to let the tears roll. I wasn't worried really so I don't understand why I cried so hard.I think the emotion of it all just hit me. But I was okay after a few minutes.
We could not have asked for a better place to go to or a nicer staff and dr. They were so accommodating and let Katie know they were with her the whole time. The dr called me only about a half hour later (she was already done), and said that she did in fact have what I did as a kid (urinary stenosis?) though it was a moderate case (I had it more severe and my real father also had it). She was dilated and the doctor is hoping that what she did do will help Katie from here on.I have to bring her back for a follow up in a few weeks to see if what she did do was sufficient enough to take care of the problem.
On one hand I am so relieved they found the problem and possibly solved it, but on the other I feel terrible that she was misdiagnosed when she was 7 with just having an overactive bladder and that she has suffered with this issue so long. Katie said it really didn't become a big problem until recently, but I sure feel bad that I wasn't on top of it better
We are home now..she slept most of the day and I came back a bit ago from spending an hour and a half waiting for her meds. Thank you again for praying
I love you guys so much!
