No more surgery's for now
Today has been a busy day. We went to U of M at 10:30am to get my staples out. On our way we got a call from the doctor asking permission to give general anesthetic for the MRI. We though the MRI was going to be done last night, but it didn't, so today it happened. We got to the hospital and met a young girl who works there who also has spina bifida. We talked with her for about 2 hours, she was an inspiration We weren't able to see Avery since she wasn't back from her MRI yet. So we went home. I got a phone call from the Doctor at about 4pm. She said that Avery was back from her MRI. and doctors were able to compare the MRI from Philadelphia Childrens Hospital to the one they did today. They said as of now she will not need any more surgeries. The best news I have heard all day. Praise God!!!!! They are taking her off the ventilator and allowing her to eat, hopefully in a day or two I will begin to start nursing her again, can't wait. I asked about her back, since it looks pretty bad, they said that the dark areas will slough off and new skin will grow underneath. The physical therapist has been working on her foot 3 times a day and has almost got it straight, amazing what a little stretching and massaging will do. All the kids are home from school, we have eaten dinner, now we are all on our way to see little Avery. Thank you for the prayers that touch our little girl.
