Day 184

Monday night's surgery went great, however the recovery was quite rocky there for a while. Sarah came out of surgery so sedated that for a couple of hours she was only breathing 4-6 times a minute. A little scary to say the least...at about 2:30 AM she finally woke up and started breathing normally on her own. Because of all the issues waking up they took her to the ICU for one night so she could be moinitored very closely. Since that night Sarah has been doing great!!! Yesterday she was transferred into a regular room and she had a flood of visitors all day. Even little Roman came to see his auntie. He brings Sarah so much joy, but she didn't like not being able to hold him. Today Sarah is doing even better than the day before. She has been checked out by all her doctors and they have cleared her to go home. I know that being home where it is more relaxing will just be great for Sarah. The doctor's are surprised by how well Sarah is doing. Her surgical sites look absolutely fantastic and she has almost no bruising or swelling to speak of!!!

"Thank you Lord for keeping our Sarah right in the palm of your hand."

Thank you everyone for all of your prayers!!!
