Tim took her down to Atlanta very early this morning to be prepped for her surgery. They left at three in the morning. Her surgery was to take between two and three hours and was done in an hour and a half! Praise God. All went better than great and the surgeon was very pleased with the results. Thank you faithful God for all you do for us, always.
Elizabeth has slept for most of the day and they are managing her pain well for her. Tim is staying with her till her release. Stephen took me down to Atlanta so I could be there while she was in recovery and to get her settled into her room. I will be home with the other children, until Elizabeth is released to come home, in a few days.
She is doing well. She is still on oxygen but they will start weaning that very soon. She has lung disease so it takes a little time for her to get back to base line in that area.
She was ready to get this done and over with. Now she is on the other side of it and we pray she heals quickly with as little pain as possible. She wants to be fully recovered by the time ballet starts back. It is an estimated four to six week recovery time. I have cleared our schedule as much as possible of appointments so we can all just take it easy and let Elizabeth rest for the next few weeks.
Thank you again for all your prayers. Prayer is very powerful and makes a huge difference. God hears our cries and is always so faithful. May God bless you back 100 fold.
