I missed this face!

Last night was my very first night away from Sakura since going to Japan to get her. I had to have a hysterectomy which required an overnight stay in the hospital. Sakura was in good hands with Daddy and my niece Katie, I didn't worry about her at all, but knowing I would be away from her almost had me not do the surgery. I went through with it though. Sakura was fine as I knew she would be, but I didn't sleep - despite having anesthesia and medication that should help me sleep, I got about 2 hours after waking up in the recovery room. I couldn't wait to see my baby girl. I'm sure Sakura missed her Mommy too.
When I got wheeled down the next morning crying with anticipation, I was SO happy to see my precious baby girl (well toddler). Daddy had dressed her in her cherry blossom dress, she looked like a beautiful princess.
The hard part now is not being able to lift her and pick her up - I'm relying a lot on my awesome niece Katie who is here with us. She's so much help - despite Sakura telling her NO every time she needs to be put in the high chair, or in her crib. Katie is a trooper.

I ♥ this little face!

Hope your recovery goes smoothly and quickly! I'll bet you never saw anything more precious in your life than Sakura's face. I love her cherry blossom dress!

Hope you're doing okay! It must be hard to not lift up Sakura, but I'm sure you'll be able to soon! Little P.S. looks so cute in her sakura dress! :D
