I know that so many of you have been praying for Harper and I haven't had a moment to stop and give you an update on Harper. We are all physically and emotionally exhausted, so I'm going to keep it short tonight.
Basically, Harper's surgery went the very best that it possibly could have. The surgeon got in there and discovered that he could, in fact, only cut out the tissue that was causing blockage, and that nothing else would be required. He actually saw the little residual hole from her first surgery and put a few stitches in to close that up, so that was a bonus!
Relief doesn't even begin to describe the feeling when we found out that they went ahead with "Plan A" and that it was completely successful with no complications whatsoever. The anticipation of this day has been a huge burden for several months now and to know that it is now behind us and successful...there just aren't words to describe the feeling. We are so very, very, truly, completely grateful. Grateful for your prayers and grateful for the way God answered them.
Harper's recovery is going to be rough, as today certainly was. She came off the ventilator, but they had to put her back on tonight, which was disappointing. Hopefully, her body can get some good rest tonight and we can hit this whole recovery thing hard tomorrow, getting rid of all kinds of tubes and wires.
Thank you again for your prayers. I mean it. Thank you!
