Surgery Update

Emma's 3rd surgery went really well.  The Maxilliofacial Surgeons worked on her this time repairing her jaw and mouth.  The jaw had not seemed to heal since they cut it in half in September.  They believe that the jaw exercises that speech pathology had her doing was the reason.  No more jaw exercises much to Emmas happiness. They put a larger plate in the jaw and covered as much of it up with whatever skin they could find around the area.  They did not have a lot to work with as a lot of it had died from last time.  Lets hope that third time is lucky for the little munchkin and that they have got it right.

She is still going to need more surgery down the track but not for at least 6 months.  YAH Praise God.

Stuart and the children took off this morning and wouldn't tell me where they were going or what they were doing.  They arrived home about an hour later with an above ground vegie garden for me.  It is nicely set up out in the back yard.  Yah me I have been wanting to grow some of our own vegies for ages but just didn't have anywhere to do it.  Now I do.

Anyway not a lot else to tell.  Am busy sewing teachers presents at the moment so when I have completed them I will show you.

Take care and stay safe

Oh and a HUGE big thank you to all those that voted for me in the Aussie Scrap Source competition.  Unfortunately I did not win :-(

Leanne!! I'm so glad Emma's surgery went well. The jaw exercises hindered the healing process? poor girl. I can't imagine what she has gone through. At least she has some time until the next surgery. Enjoy your new veggie garden!! And sorry about Scrap Source - that is their loss girl. love you....xoxo
