Firstly Stuart and I want to thank everyone that has called, send messages and prayed for Emma. The kindness from everyone has been so touching and overwhelming.
Emma had her surgery on Wednesday morning and it all went well, they removed two sugar cube sized pieces of the tumour for biopsy. She did not handle the anaesthetic all that well and morphine does not agree with her. She was not a happy camper at all. Thursday was spend running around the hospital having a bone scan and another CT scan. Poor little munchkin was so tired by the afternoon and in loads of pain. We didn't get much sleep that night as she was up most of it crying in pain. Friday she just laid in her bed most of the day, she hadn't eaten anything since dinner Tuesday night and with all the medications that she has been on she has found it impossible to keep anything down. We did finally get her to eat something today though and that has stayed down, she has lots more colour in her face as well and has been sitting up watching tv.
We are in for a long road with all that she is going to have to have done. We do not know how bad it is yet but the surgery alone to remove it is quite big. She will need to be in theatre for approximately 7 hours. They have to be delicate and careful around all the nerves etc for her face.
They have said that she may need a few rounds of chemotherapy and radiation but we will cross these bridges when we get to them and take each day as it comes. She wants me to take over to school tomorrow to see if I can get her some homework as she doesn't want to fall behind, lol so typical of Emma.
Anyway when I find out more then I will let you know. She is happy at the moment so that is all that matters to us.
