Surgery update

Since you haven't heard from me in months, I'm now going to inundate you with lots of posts in one day. :)

Emily is done with surgery (as of 12:45pm) and is in recovery. I am waiting to be called back. Her primary surgeon (there were two working on her mouth) is optimistic that as long as the flap is able to maintain blood flow this will be the only surgery on her palate (she'll have additional facial surgeries as necessary as she grows). The surgeon was concerned that the flap looked a little pale, indicating decreased blood flow, so please pray that her palate tissue would get the blood it needs to survive and heal!
