X, Y, and Z are always the hardest (well, and Q and K, too, depending on how things go…) Great poem! Hopefully this surgery will bring her a lot of relief.
What a lucky little girl to have her grandma write her an ABECEDARIAN for her tonsillectomy! (How many girls can claim that?) What fun words for an un-fun day. Way to take that challenge on!

I was totally enchanted. Grand-D #2 will be thrilled.
So clever and cute! I love what you did for “x” and “z” 🙂
