Whew! It's Over...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! ...for all your prayers, fasting, well wishes & goodies!


Morgan Mae started surgery at about 7:50a.m. and was done at about 12:25p.m. A whole 4 & 1/2 (+)hours! Yes, that is a heck of a long time to wait for your little one who's in surgery!


She did great. The surgeon said it went beautifully. Her cast is huge & hot pink. She looks like she should be riding a pony.

If your curious about how great, by the time I got to the recovery room, the one their in before they go up to their private room, she was wide awake. As soon as she saw me, she said Mama. Morgan started talking about butterflies here & wanting a drink. The only little issue she had in recovery was body temp. She was a little cold. As we pushed upstairs, we met her Papa & she reached her arm out of the bed & waved hi. At 5 p.m., she ate a whole bowl of macaroni & cheese! Yes, the surgeon & anethesiologist said she wouldn't be hungry or thirsty until probably Saturday, maybe tomorrow! By the time I left at 6:30p.m. she was giggling, smiling, hugging everyone who entered her room, & of course, talking about butterflies! Isaac stayed for the night to help out with his sweet girl. Thank you for staying with her Isaac. We love you!



Now it's onto recovery. Morgan has an epidural & a pain pump to control the pain. They will start weaning her off of those & start oral pain meds & see how she does, maybe tomorrow. The other concern is swelling. So they are elevating & icing as much as they can. We get both of those under control & she doesn't get sick from the oral pain medications, maybe they'll let her come home early:). But at the latest, Monday or Tuesday.



YES...Morgan Mae is truly a miracle. She is absolutely amazing.


I came home to have dinner with Noah & Mom. He didn't want anything to do with dinner or me even talking to him. He just wanted me to know how he felt about things. He started balling as soon as I walked through the door. I guess he had been pretty upset since he woke up from his nap. He started out his day looking for "More-me"(morgan) & when he saw all the buses go past our house. I finally got him to sleep about 9:45p.m. He usually goes to sleep about 7:45p.m. Poor guy. I think he thought his day was harder than Morgan's!


So, back to Morgan, she did great! And we're all hoping that the healing & recovery goes as well as the surgery did!!!



And on another note, since she woke up from anethesia at about 1pm, she has been awake. At about 8:30 tonight, they finally gave her some valuum & everyone had to leave Ms. Social's room so she would go to sleep! Crazy girl!



We could never thank you enough for all your prayers & love & concern for our sweet girl & family! Love to all. I'm off to bed. This is one tired lady:).







(watching the movie Cars & twirling her hair. she's trying her best to stay awake & it was working:)

Thank you so much for the update! I've been wondering how she's doing. What a tough little girl! I'm so glad everything went well. Hopefully these next few days go just as smoothly. Make sure you get some rest too!

What a trooper! I'm sorry I didn't get to see you guys yesterday in the waiting room. Porter's appointment went way longer then usual and I had to get him home so he could go to school. I hope recovery goes as well as the surgery did. It is amazing how resilient kids are. We want to come and visit you guys when life becomes "normal" again.

Don't ask me why I'm in tears, but I am. I just wish I could be there and give you a huge hug and kiss that sweet little Morgan! I just miss you guys! I'm so glad everything went well!! Morgan is the most amazing little spirit I have even known in my life. Such a blessing!! And that precious little Noah! I just adore those babies!! And can't wait to meet the third one!! We're hoping to get into an orthopedic surgeon somewhere down there in the next week so hopefully we'll get a chance to stop in. If not, I guess we'll see you at Tristan's wedding!! Love you all SO SO much!!

I was thinking about her a lot yesterday. I am so glad to hear things are going well. She's so sweet.

She looks so good! It is amazing how well she seems to do from surgery. She is so cute. I don't think I would be that happy post surgery! I hope things continue to go well and can return home as a family as soon as possible!

Rin said...

I love how Morgan talks about butterflies, she is so sweet. I am so glad to read that the surgery went well. I love her pink cast. I hope you are getting some good sleep so you can keep up with it all. I hope all is well with recovery. Hope to see Morgan home soon.
