Brooke got a Popsicle after surgery. That was the one thing she wanted.
Still a little out of it.
Never cried when the IV was taken out.
The day after surgery.
Brooke's surgery went well. She had some pain the night of surgery, but she recovered quickly. Her doctor said the hernia was very large and that Brooke would probably not be able to walk the first day and that we would have to carry her. Brooke was able to walk with a limp but she walked and did great. The day after surgery she was bouncing off the walls and you would never knew she had surgery the day before. :)
I have been married 18 years to my best friend, Kevin. I have two beautiful daughters. Both my girls
are very special. I love children and would have a house full if God would allow. God did allow us to go through IVF for my oldest daughter. (Courtney)
God also placed a little girl in our hearts from China. Brooke needed us as much as we needed her. Brooke was in our hearts for 15 months. We became her forever family on December 6, 2005. I feel truly blessed that God gave me my husband and my two girls. We all enjoy life and love to do things together. Our children bring us much joy and happiness. I love to laugh. My children make me do that a great bit. God,my husband, and my children are my world.
