She made it through surgery


Madi came back safely from surgery.  They took out her external shut and put in a new internal one.  She's now five weeks old and has had four shunts (her first one, two external ones, and the one she has in now).  She is in quite a bit of pain so they gave her morphine to help her feel better.  She's not very interested in food but is resting quietly on my chest.  I did try to breastfeed her and, when that did not work, tried giving her milk out of a syringe.  My biggest prayer was that she would come through the surgery safely.  Now that she has done that, I'm praying that her shunt will stay infection-free, will stay placed correctly, and will continue to function as it is supposed to.  I am so thankful that God has protected her.  We are hopeful that we will get to head home tomorrow.  I couldn't ask for a better Christmas gift!

Praise God for a successful surgery and we'll continue to pray for no complications and for her to be pain free.
