Hello Readers! I wanted to just quickly post to let you know that S's oral surgery went well today. She has a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards, but she's been a real trooper today. I'm so impressed with her. She's doing a good job resting up per doctor's orders.
By this evening, she was hungry (as he said she'd be) and she was able to eat some pudding, sherbet and finally a dish of macaroni and cheese (she tried soup first and then saw a commercial for the mac-n-cheese and craved it so bad, so I made her some). She can't chew yet, so the macaroni had to be swallowed whole, but she managed.
She's still pretty swollen -- especially on the right side of her face (they apparently had to work harder to get those ones out) -- but I think she'll look and feel better in a couple days.
Anyway, thank you so much for praying and for checking back to see how she's doing.
