She had her tonsils removed this afternoon. The doctor said everyone was very impressed with them. Miss 18 was very sore afterwards. She didn't want to be touched at all, except by Miss 16. They are very close and it was just lovely to watch Miss 16 care for her sister. She helped her drink, massaged her hand and feet, and interpreted her croaky, sleepy phrases for those around her. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that my tiny little girls (they were always the little girls, because we had big girls too!) are so grown up. So grown up and such great people. If I just met them I would want to be friends with them. Miss 18 will spend tonight in hospital and if all goes well will be home tomorrow. Can't wait.

Today was designated by Miss 18 as "Knife Day". Yes, she finally had her tonsillectomy. She is such a trooper. The last few weeks her speech has been even more affected by her tonsils as they just kept on getting bigger. (Hard to believe I know, cause they were humongous before!) Everyone was mocking her speech and she became very upset about it. People who didn't know her thought she was deaf after listening to her speak. Those tonsils were just silencing her speech and sounds. This is her on the walk to admissions this morning.
