Day One - Sleep One

Day one went well... Our munchkin is one tough little trooper I must say... Joyanne is at the hospital tonight with Mary, and I am back at the house to regroup for the morning. Surgery seemed to go as planned according to the doctors while she was in recovery. She was upstairs and back with us shortly after we talked with the surgeons and was in fairly good spirits. They had talked about several options for the surgery but the result was a fairly clean lip repair and not much in the nose area... So she only looks like Sylvester Stallone in Rocky 2, not Rocky... She has a pretty good fat lip or two, but is not nearly as 'puffy' as the last time we went through this... At any rate, she faired pretty good this afternoon/evening and even started to sport a little of her personality (read - spunk and attitude) by the end of the night... We will see what tomorrow brings :)

More to follow.... C & J & S & M


  1. So very happy to hear that all went well for Mary's surgery. She is such a sweet little girl...with lots of 'personality'!!..glad she was feeling well enough to show some of that! Will continue praying for her recovery and that all will go well as she begins to heal. Hope Sylvie is enjoying being spoiled!! :)
