|Sisters have the best hands to hold!|
This time the doctors had to get through quite a bit of scar tissue before even beginning her surgery. She spent four days in PICU and nine days on the cardiac wing in recovery. Her little heart was on the heart/lung bypass maching for 158 minutes and she lost a large amount of blood during surgery.
Today, though, only six weeks later, she is so excited that she gets to swing and slide and ride her bike beginning tomorrow. Everyday, for the past week we have counted down the days and today was ZERO! YEA! God is good and He is a miracle working God!
Tonight, though, she really gave me a scare and I ask that you please pray that everything is ok. I will be calling the doctor in the morning to hopefully get some answers. This past Saturday night, Lia began crying with a terrible headache, out of the blue while we were driving. We got her some motrin and it went away pretty quickly. I assumed it was just allergies since she seemed to be a little stuffy and was outside much of the day. She has been fine since then until today. This morning shc woke up at 4 am and just didn't feel well. I gave her tylenol and she was fine all day. She went to school and played all day without any problems. Tonight, while bathing her, she began screaming with a terrible headache again. I called the hospital to ask if there was something that I needed to be aware of. The nurse didn't know of anything, told me to give her motrin and to bring her in if it didn't stop within an hour. I was prepared to head to the hospital tonight, but she fell asleep and is sleeping soundly now. This is not anything that we were warned of and after all she has been through, it breaks my heart to watch her holding her little head and crying in such pain.
Just a few pictures I have taken the past week with my school camera,
since my other is still out of commission. I just love these,
but didn't get to post them
since I had misplaced my card reader.
