It is Paycee again. I just had to drag myself off the couch to let you all know that I am back from my "big girl" surgery. Let me tell you, it is hard being a big girl. I now know why they call it growing pains. The doctors said that I did great during the surgery and everything went really well. They said I was a perfectly healthy and happy little girl. I could have told them that.
I have spent most of the day resting. My big sister and brother were so happy to see me. My daddy Dan told me that they cried and cried when daddy Jeff took me to the doctor. I guess they were worried too. It sure is nice to know that I am loved.
My dad's are really taking good care of me. I don't think I have had to walk anywhere all night. I could get used to be carried around. They got my favorite blanket out. It has pink hearts on it and I love to cuddle up in it. It makes me feel so warm and safe. I know that I am going to be fine.
Thank you so much for all the prayers. I know that God was listening and He helped me make it through the surgery okay. Well, I better go. I can hear the paint cans opening again.
Oh...my dad's said thanks for caring too. My daddy Dan will be back soon with some house updates.
This is Paycee. I hacked into my daddy's computer to send you all a quick message. Tomorrow I am going to the doctor to have my "big girl" surgery. I am not for sure what that means, but I have heard my daddy saying something about not wanting me to have babies. I personally think that is pretty silly. I am a baby, so I wouldn't want to have babies anyway.
The doctor says I have nothing to worry about, but I can tell that my dads are a little worried. I was hoping you could do me a big favor. Will you please pray that my surgery goes well, and that I recover quickly? Will you also pray that my dads don't worry too much about me. They love me so much, and of course I love them. I will feel better if I know they are not worrying. I really appreciate your help, and I will make sure someone lets you know how well I do.
Oh...I almost forget, my dads are still painting. I don't know why they are painting I thought the house looked fine the way it was. I have been trying to help, but they seem to get aggravated when I get too close to the paint. I guess they do not want me to do a better job than them. Hopefully, you can see some pictures soon.
Thanks again for your help and for being so good to my daddy.

Where Did I Get My Door Box?
I receive so many comments asking me where I got my door box. So I thought I would answer the question here in my sidebar. I got my door box at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. The lady who makes the door boxes is Tracie Hamler. She and her husband make them. They are wonderful door boxes and you will be very pleased with the quality. You can visit Tracie's website by clicking the picture of my door box.
