Tuesday , Emilia's surgery (bilateral femoral osteotomy) went really well. The first couple of days were very tough. But once the epidural was repositioned she started to feel much better.
She will be in the fixator for 6 months to slowly lengthen both her femurs. When all is done she will be 3 inches taller. She is very happy about this but Lucy is not so happy. This could possibly make Lucy a little shorter than Emilia and she is not happy. The one thing we did not expect was for her to be in her wheelchair for six months. With her last surgery to lengthen her legs she was in a different style fixator that allowed for weight bearing.
Thank you everyone for the cards . This really brightens her day!
Tonight Ed brought the girls to the hospital for a visit. It did my heart good to kiss and squeeze them. I have missed them so much . Emilia was so happy to see them also.
It has been very hard being back in a hospital setting. Even though it is a different hospital there are the same sights , smells and sounds. Emilia has been stable the entire time and continues to make progress everyday . This has been such a blessing. I don't think I could have taken any emergencies.
Today three beautiful Blue birds flew into the tree outside of Emilia's' hospital room. They then flew by her window not once but three times for several minutes. I probably would not have thought anything of this but today it has been raining all day. Three little blue birds... Hmmmm?
Praying we will be home soon.
