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:)
