post surgery

Surgery went good - pretty much as expected. She will wear a cast now for 3 weeks till we come back for her followup. Right now she is quite uncomfortable. Her pain meds take the edge off but she cries lots and complains of "owie elbow." Poor sweetie. Tomorrow we see her leg surgeon and I pray I don't hear the word surgery come out of his mouth! Ember is such a trooper and its hard to see her hurt. On the homefront it appears one of our little dogs got taken by a coyote. I am so sad about this. I think its cause I've been a lonely emotional mess here and I wish I could have prevented it. We'll be home Tuesday night and it will be nice to be home!

Philly again

Ember and I are back in Philadelphia. On Friday she will be having elbow surgery. I have so much I would like to write yet it is hard to know how much of my feelings to share. Em is doing great. She can talk nonstop! Please keep us in your prayers. Pray that the surgery goes well and that she isn't in too much pain. Pray for me as it is hard being in the hospital far from home alone with your child not knowing anyone. Pray also for Thad while he juggles both work and the other 4 kids.
I am so lucky to be Ember's mom. My children teach me so much. I am so blessed.
