Her first surgery went very well, praise God !!! The doctor was ...ummm....ok, 'blown away' by how bad she was...he said it was awful in there. Poor angel !! Surgery lasted right at 4 hours and he was pleased with the way it 'set'.
|Our girl, just out of recovery.|
|Resting comfortably, with "Jay", her teddy bear by her side. They've had a rough time, these two !|
Our hospital stay lasted 5 days...during which, we had a couple of 'issues' with her pain meds....let's just say that we have learned (the hard way), that Mia has a really bad adverse reaction to Valium. We'll leave that there, and have now put that on her "allergy" list !! :/ After coming home from the hospital, we continued to have some uncontrolled pain. This took us back to the emergency room. There, they did a scan to be sure that the hip had not moved, and we were very happy to learn that it hadn't. We were, however, readmitted, for pain management. Thankfully, once we got that back under control, we were able to come home, and day by day, it has gotten a little easier. She has had a terrible time getting used to this cast (as anyone can imagine), and her limitations are becoming painfully obvious to her, no pun intended !!
So as not overload this posting with pictures, I will post them on the "photos" page (what a concept, huh ?! LOL)...and everyone can see how well she's done !!!
We go back to the doctor on Sept. 19th for a follow up with a new scan, and to decide how much longer she will have to wear this cast !!! :)
We cannot begin to thank you all enough for your constant love, support & prayers !!! Please know, and believe, that we have relied on them heavily, and have gained tremendous strength from them !!!! God used each one of you to hold us up and get us through !!!! One surgery down, 3 more to go !!!
Praise, Jesus, we will see her run again, one day soon !!! ;)
With a Mommy's grateful heart,
|"Jay" sends his love too ! <3|
