Stitches Removed.....



G had her post op appointment at the hospital today. They had to sedate her and remove the stitches. She did pretty well and didn't fight that much. I left the room to check on H who was screaming in the play room. They wouldn't let me bring her in the treatment section with G. I knew she would panic and told them so but it didn't matter. We set ourselves up in the recovery room they gave us and waited for G to be brought to us. She looked good and was making silly faces. Wish I would have brought the camera. She came around and ate the fruit cup, apple juice and some applesauce. Her nose is still a little flat but overall I am really impressed with the surgeons. I got a little peak at her palate when she was yelling and it looks good, no fistulas as of yet. The worst looking thing I would say is her hip where they took the bone graft. It looks terrible.
Anyway, I am not going to post her post surgery pictures in order to protect her privacy but will give you a little peak at her now after the stitches came out.



Please ignore the sweet potato's on her face, I am just happy she is finally eating something!!
I am also thinking of taking a break. We have a lot going on right now. Many worries and just some things I can't go into here. I may pop in now and then but I just don't have it in me to keep blogging right now. Not unless some prayers get answered and things change.

I am praying for you guys. I hope Gracie continues to do well. I am so sorry she had such a rough time in the hospital (I am just now catching up on emails/blogs).

We are settling in here in Austin. I really like it so far.
