Surgery a Success

Taylor was such a brave girl with this very difficult and painful surgery.  We had to leave our house at 5:45 am for a scheduled 7am surgery.  Unfortunately, some things are out of our control and we ended up waiting for her turn until after 8am as the previous case had some setbacks.  When you are scared and nervous and 15 years old, that is not easy!  The surgery lasted about 45 minutes.  I was finally able to see her around 10am.  The doctor said it went great and that she will be able to breathe 75 % better by next Monday and then continue to improve from there.  She has not been able to breathe through her nose for years so this will be a nice change!

This picture was taken prior to surgery.  I won’t post photos from afterwards as she looks  and feels pretty tough now.  There will be lots of blood and pain for several days.  The most difficult part of the whole procedure for her was the I.V. that they had to put in.  The thought of it scared her ahead of time and she said it really hurt her the whole time it was in.

Thank you for all your prayers for my sweet girl.  Tonight is going to be rough but I know she will continue to feel better with each passing day.

Oh, that doesn't look fun. I HATE IV's. Praying for a speedy recovery!

Your poor, brave, beautiful girl! Sending healing energies her way in abundance. And oh, IV's. :( Worst part of my c-section--the IV, hands down. :( I feel for her!

Thinking of you all...
