Surgery is done

Nevaeh had her surgery today and it went very well. It was longer than what was expected and more difficult than they thought it would be. They were able to do all that they wanted to do and are happy with how she is doing. She is stable and having no complications.

This really has been one of the hardest days of my life. I could not do anything. So i sat and prayed and cried. All i wanted to do was to be able to take this away for her.

We had Alex and Josh with us for the day and they were so good. The were at the hospital by 7am and did not get to leave until 6:30pm. Only the last hour or so were they having a hard time. I was so proud of them.

I need to update you all with pictures but I need to find some time to stop at walmart to get a reader for my memory card so i am able to get them on my laptop. I have taken over 100 pictures already. So i need to do that soon.

Thank you all for all your prayers i am so thankful that so many people are praying for her.

I'm so sorry that I missed her going into surgery! Glad to hear that despite being more difficult, that she is doing well!

The hard part is over. Now just concentrate on getting her home! She is such a beautiful little girl! Can't wait to see more pictures of her! Give her a gentle kiss from our Nevaeh!

We hope that all continues to go well. Thankfully we have not been at PCMC a lot lately, so we have not met you guys, but we understand how difficult this situation can be even when they are doing well. We will continue to pray for your family.
