The plastic surgeon came in at 1:00 pm and told us that everything went well and that she is on her way to the PICU. We will be able to see her in about 30 minutes. He said that there were no complications at all and that things went as smoothly as possible. Luckily most of the nerves in her head will be numb due to the trauma for about three weeks so she won’t have much pain on the top of her head, it will just feel strange to her. The swelling will increase for about three days and then start going back down.
Everything went as well as we could have hoped for. Thank you for all of your fasting, thoughts, and prayers! We could definitely feel a peace in our hearts throughout the surgery.In the middle of writing this we got the call to see our little girl. She looks different, but that was to be expected. It is hard to see your child hooked up to all those tubes, but it will be for the best. She is still asleep, but making her familiar noises. We love this little girl! She is so lucky to have everyone supporting her.
