Alayna after surgery

Alayna came through surgery like a champ. She was in the OR at 7:30 and we were talking with her Dr. by 8 am! She had terrible ear infections in both ears (Yeah for the tubes that we really didn't think we needed but were doing because we were in there anyway).

She came out of recovery at 8:45 and moved up to her room. She slept for a couple minutes then woke up and ate 2 cups of jello and drank a bunch of water and is asking for more.

Her IV failed so they had to take it out but, because she is already drinking and eating well they are going to leave it out. WOO HOO!

Thanks for the prayers, we felt them and God definitely responded.
Please pray for an easy, pain free recovery for her.

If she continues doing so well and has no problems tonight we will go home after morning rounds.

oh, and if you go to my blog today ignore the message to "Rochelle", Stephanie forgot about Alayna's surgery today and asked you a favor. But good people like CH and Heather took care of it. Good thing I prayed yesterday!

Way to go Alayna girl!! Glad she was eating jello and drinking after the surgery so she didn't need the IV back in. And good call on the ear tubes! Praying for a smooth and speedy recovery for her. Sounds like she'll do just fine. Alayna, you rock!
