The last.........bath

I know, I know...its silly it seems but when you have surgery and are in lovely body cast for x-amount of time really you don't get to "bathe" anymore. (okay sponge baths will do but seriously they are not the same!)

So here we celebrate "the last bath". Lots and lots of bubbles and lots and lots of scrubbing.

She gets to stay in until her hands are looking like raisins and the water starts to get cold.

Or until she tries to snatch up my camera :)

More to come!

Sockin it

Taken before surgery of course. This is what happens when its freezing cold outside and there is nothing to do....pump up the heat and run around in knee socks :)

Ms. Kassie is doing good. She is finally trying to move around now instead of being a limp rag doll in a cast (I think she was in the frame of mind that she couldn't move at all!). She begs to get down on her belly now...

And does her silly army crawl...

More to come! :)

Quick Update!!!

Just a real quick update so everyone knows we are still alive!! :) Kassie's surgery went well. She woke up ticked off...I mean REALLY ticked off. Pulling wires off, IV off, ready to hop out of the bed even though she still couldn't feel anything waist down. She was MAD. First she kept asking for her "brace off" (she wears one at night), then she kept asking us to "open her cast" (maybe take it off?) now it is literally "I wanna get down and walk NOW"! Yikes I hope 6 weeks FLIES by!

Here she is all looking awful. :( Her face is so red cause she was SO mad!

And her puppy friend that got to go back in the OR with her. Complete with a hospital ID of course!

Gotta run~ will update more later! Thanks everyone for the messages & emails!!!

We're off!!

In the wee hours of the morning we are heading off for Kassie's surgery. If you can please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. I am going to miss my bouncing, running, energetic girl.

I will update when I can.
