I love to laugh and love with my family, read, exercise, cook and sew, all the while giving thanks to God for his immeasureable love and faithfulness to me.

The human body is really a remarkable machine.  It is hard to believe how much healing can occur in just 24 or 48 hours.  Mei Mei's surgery was this past Tuesday and by late Wednesday afternoon we were home. Thursday we were outside enjoying the sun, chalking up a storm and this weekend we went to visit Grandma and Grandpa and played out on the beach.

Thankfully everything went very smoothly.  We were able to get a surgery time of 6 a.m., so even though we were up bright and early, at least we didn't have to deal with the problem of not being able to eat.  Mei Mei was very calm (and pretty much clueless, which is how you want it, I guess!) and seemed at peace as everything got started.  I was able to go back into the O.R. with her while she went to sleep and sang to her as she drifted off.

The post-op was pretty much how we remembered it was with the Noodle.  Yucky.  That horrible cry--a cross between pain, a whimper and a groan.  Once we got up into the room and got settled, Mei Mei drifted between sleeping and semi-awake.  I spent the night with her and while there wasn't a ton of sleeping, her pain seemed to be under control, which was the main thing.

We follow up with the surgeon on Monday, but he was very pleased with how everything went--so are we. So glad that all the hospital "stuff" is behind us!!  Thank you for all the prayers and sweet thoughts.  We appreciate them and definitely felt the Lord's presence with us as we went through this journey.
