Yesterday as we were waiting for Savannah Grace’s and Rylee’s surgeries we went back and they were given an oral sedative to prepare for anesthesia. Rylee was never really effected by the sedative. She was talking and clapping with rubber gloves on her hands as they took her back.
Savannah Grace on the other hand was hilarious. A few minutes after taking the sedative, Savannah Grace began to have the eyes half closed, heavy head deal. Then she just started laughing. Her words were beginning to slur and she thought the whole thing was incredibly funny. Anita, Mom Bishop and I were laughing our heads off as well. SG was as high as a kite. This is the only way this is funny.
In the midst of Savannah Grace’s drifting off to "happy land" I did have a frightening thought. I hope she is never in that state of mind because of poor choices with drugs or alcohol. I know this is an uber-serious way to look at an honest situation but I can’t help being a dad that wants to protect his daughters. Having never experienced anything like that myself I can’t imagine the harm that could be caused when you don’t have control of yourself.
As for now, both girls are doing great and SG is back to her old self. I’ll never forget that little moment though and how funny a sticker of Tigger on the wall was for just a few minutes.
