After the shift change from 7 - 8 we were able to go see our little girl. It was INCREDIBLE. You can not imagine the excitment and joy to know that one of the most difficult aspects of this whole ordeal is now over. I am not sure if I will post any of the pictures I took because they are pretty graphic. I will try and get a far away shot so you can at least see what is going on and what it looks like.
As of now her chest is left open with a surgical plastic membrane covering the open cavity. She is paralysed and on a respirator. She has good color and is a little swollen from surgery but other than that she looks beautiful.
I want to thank everyone that has come to this site to get updates. I have been completely overwhelmed by the amount of love and support that has been shown my family. There is no way I could ever pay it back so I hope you all know that I am truely appreciative of your prayers, fasts, and the constant thoughts. You have all been truely amazing.
