Katie is scheduled to have dental work done under general anesthesia at the hospital tomorrow. Would everyone please pray with me for a safe procedure and recovery? Thanks!

Thank you everyone for your prayers! Katie did really well with the anesthesia. When we went through this with Sammy, he had a very hard time waking up from it, and keeping his oxygen levels up. Katie's recovery was a breeze compared to his. When they brought me to the recovery area to be with her as she woke up, they took the oxygen away while I was taking her from the nurse, and her levels didn't fall, so they just kept it off. She was fidgety coming out of it until she got to nurse, and then she calmed right down and took a nap. But her vitals were great the whole time. And her dental restorations went very well. She got a filling in one of her molars and caps on her 4 top front teeth. Only the front 2 had cavities (right in the middle, at the gumline where the enamel is bad), but the two on the sides had the enamel problems too, and the dentist felt if he left them as they were, they'd decay and need work, too.
She slept most of the time at the hospital, and all the way home, but as soon as we got home, she had to go find her brother. She apparently missed him very much. She also started playing and running around like normal as soon as she got a little applesauce in her belly. I was expecting her to sleep all day like her brother had... Nope!
