Anna made it home and she is trying to smile :)




We came home tonite and Dorothy is right, " There is no place like home." Although Anna did very well. She did not throw up at all !!!! She almost did about 6 times but I talked her threw it and with all the meds...she did not. This was the first of many surgeries she has had where she did not. She is very swollen which is normal but doing well. She had alot of work on the inside of her mouth and upper lip and she has a metal plate that the bone adheres to that goes from her lip up to her eye. The surgeon felt like it was successful but we will know if the bone graft took at her post op visit. She had 2 previous bone grafts that did not take. Now at home she is on the soft diet for a month and mouth washes and whatever pain meds or nausea meds she needs...No straining or lifting or bending over past 90 degrees and of course not rough playing...Recovering is the easier part now. So glad to be on this side of it.
