Going Home

Forgive me if this sounds loopy, but I have been up since 3:30 am ... It seems Maggie is not in the mood to sleep ... She is doing great and does not seem to be in a lot of pain, she has ate well and they are going to let us go home early PRAISE THE LORD !!!

I am not even going to try and describe what her head looks like ... I was totally shocked, but the ports to inflate the tissue expander is external ... Which means my daughter has tubes hanging off the top of her head and will for the next 3 months ... Pray Pray Pray that there is no infection, we can keep Maggie or any other kid for that matter from pulling on them ...

Father you are the great healer, continue to heal my daughter and help us as a family to be able to help Maggie through this transition and give me the strength to be on my toes to prevent anything from happening to these ports over the next several !!!

Thanks everyone for your prayers and please don't stop !!!

I think that between the help of the Father and the unending love and protection of her brothers and sister, no one is going to dare pull on those tubes. Nevertheless, we will pray. What a brave little princess you have and we will pray against any infection too.
She is sure to have an incredible testimony of God's faithfulness as she grows up!
