They then told us to come back the next morning at 8 for day surgery. They said no food after 2am, but she can have a bottle before 6. So we woke her up at 5.30, gave her a bottle of milk, then off we went to the hospital only to be told that when they said bottle.... they meant water???? Who gives a toddler a "Bottle" of water? So we got stuck waiting until 12 before she went in without been able to give her any food or milk!!
It was heartbreaking watching her go under, and when came out, her little hand was wrapped up like a boxing glove, but at least she was fine (and very happy to be able to eat). She did get upset though when she couldnt open things like books and games because she could only use one hand.
But the bandage is now off, and although she is minus one fingernail which will take a while to grow back again, but at least she is back to her normal self.
We made a trip out to Newcastle last week to Oakvale farm and our little muppet had a ball
All she wanted to do was cuddle the goats
We even got to give a koala a pat!
