Great News!!

the surgeon just came in and gave us the update...EVERYTHING WENT BETTER THAN EXPECTED!!!! HUGE sigh of relief!!!! The doctors said that everything went just as planned and she did beautifully. My strong little girl!!! What a day! They just brought her out of the OR and she is back in her room. We are in the waiting room until we can go back and be with her..probably about another hour or so. She needs to be hooked back up and stabalized. Tonight will be a long, crazy night watching all her vital signs and making sure she is doing okay at all times. We wont be leaving her side. They next 12 hours are crucial--watching vital signs and watching for swelling. She had a chest tube put in for drainage. Her chest was able to be closed back up because they were so confident in the surgery. Yeah!
So far so good.. Thank you everyone for all the fasting and praying that went on today. please keep her in your prayers...

I am so happy to hear that all went well with the surgery!!! I hope all went well for her through the night too!! I was thinking about you guys yesterday and praying for your family. I'm sure it's nice to have the surgery over with. You have a special little girl and I'm sure she knows her family loves her and is fighting for her.
