Surgery Time

A few days before Christmas, LynnMarie was scheduled for surgery. She was born with club feet and although they did an amazing job in China, her right foot has started to turn in as it does with most club foot kids at age 3 and the doctor wanted to go ahead and repair a tendon. He lengthened it and moved it around. Although it was outpatient, she will wear the cast for 4-6 weeks. We are down 2 weeks now and so far so good. We had the surgery at the hospital momma works at so we had a few special visitors. We wanted a candy cane cast but as you can see we got a Christmas green one instead. Beside the loopy medicine making her see birds, she did amazing and after some juice and popsicles we were out of there within 5 hours. The challenge has been keeping her entertained. She is in a non walking cast but she can scoot around. As you can see, they casted her with her knee bent as that will also help her muscle stay in place.

Sorry for the lack of posts. Find us on facebook for more pics. I will try to post more often. Thanks for the prayers and support for sweet girl.

6 am and waiting to be called back

Post goofy juice

Right after surgery
The next day was her Christmas program. They wheeled her out and she did so well. She got to sit up for her Christmas party and loved that.

So glad to see her doing so well. I can't imagine all the hugs and love that it takes to see your precious baby go into surgery. You are a trooper too! Best wishes in 2012!
