I bet you can guess why she is smiling tonite.....




Tomorrow am Anna is having surgery. She is having this removed - Yeah! and a bone graft done. To say she is a bit excited is minimal...She is ready. She will have bone removed from her hip and placed in her upper jaw. That will actually be more of the pain source than her removal. She has had 2 bone grafts before for her front top gum area but they were not successful and she lost her front teeth. So she is not done with surgeries yet. There is a nose and lip tweek as well ....Hopefully that does it. Either way we are praising God tonite that the first half of her jaw surgery is done. She will be on a soft diet for another month and then normal . Please pray for her...She throws up alot. Even when they medicate her. Last time she threw up from 6pm to 1 am and then was fine. So we are not looking forward to that part .

Praying for an excellent outcome and minimal discomfort for Anna.

I am so happy for her that it is coming off! :) Jeane, can they put phenegren in her IV BEFORE she wakes up to keep the nausea back? We have done this and it worked.

Actually this time they are giving her steroids for this. They have tried phenegran before with no positive results :-( The problem we had last time was the surgeon did not write for nausea when we got to the floor and by the time they got him and the meds up on the floor it was 2 hrs:-(:-( I have it covered if it were to happen again...I brought her meds from home for that and we will self medicate:-) I also told our surgeon I would if it happened again...This doctor is great medically but I don't like his bedside. He is not a regular team member of the cleft team. He is brought in as a consult for severe jaw issues like Anna had---Boy it sure sounds good to say the word had :-)

Had! That's so awesome! She looks great and I know she must be excited about the days to come!

I'm jumping in late in the day but will definately pray.
