Thank you so much to everyone who sent us messages and thought of us during Charlotte's surgery this week.
Our hospital trip went as well as expected and she is now recovering. Still not back to my usual happy little lady but she has moments of sunshine before the pain kicks in and she is unhappy then for a while until the pain relief kicks in. Another week or so though and she should be 100% recovered. I think the biggest thing so far is that she doesn't snore anymore. Which means I'm not sleeping very well because before the op I knew that she was OK because I could hear the snoring but now I seem to be waking quite frequently and checking to make sure she's still breathing!
The facilities were not what I was expecting for more than $1500 a night but the staff were faultless. The theatre nurse who did the hand overs words were most accurate when she said "Charlotte has come out of the anaesthetic quite..... anti-socially...." and the staff just took it all in their stride to comfort both of us. They were all fantastic and definitely made the stay as good as could be expected.
