Happy new year!

Post-op yet again

Well we made it about a year. Emily had surgery this morning to do some scar tissue repair from her previous surgeries. Her orthodontist needed the extra tissue removed before we can start her palate expansion. Surgery was supposed to be in January but I asked to be put on a cancellation list so we could get it in under this years' deductible. I'd say that's a bad reason, but if we have to do it anyway better do it economically! 

Sleeping off the meds...

Emily's prayer

We have prayer at the end of our morning reading and it's always insightful.

Emily: "God, please help mama's cold to go away so she doesn't cough or sneeze or blow her nose...and the snot running down her nose should probably stop..."

It continued for a few more minutes and I wish I'd had an audio recording (as I usually wish with Emily's prayers!) but after that phrase I had such a hard time not laughing that I stopped listening closely. Laughing would have caused me to cough and need to blow my nose...and apparently have snot running down my nose.
