Tough Little Baby

Post surgery Emma looks like half a football player,
but she is tougher than a whole one.
Despite her toughness and linebacker looking bandages, she still needs a good deal of gentle care and help around the house.  I sort of feel like we have a baby again.  I had to cut Emma's meat at dinner last night, helped her get dressed this morning and put her down for a nap this afternoon.  We are giving her medicines every 4 hours (even in the middle of the night) and watching her sleep more than we have in years.  Thankfully she does not spit up or throw tantrums!  As sorry as we are that Emma has to go through this we are all enjoying this cozy time together and it feels oddly lovely to take care of our sweet little girl again.
