Emma went into surgery on Thursday the 18th and although they told us it would only take between 4 - 6 hours she was in there for 9.... 9 incredibly long hours. They had to remove her cheek bone and the knuckle of the jaw. The cheek has been plated and they have taken some fat from her tummy to build up her face a little. They also went back in through the top and they also had to extend the cut so it now goes from the bottom of her ear to almost the top of her head. She did really well.
Today is day 4 and she has been doing a brilliant job. She is still in ICU but is hopefully being moved to a different ward this afternoon. We had her sitting in a chair this afternoon which was a major step forward. Had to take her off the opiates as they were making her really sick so she is now just receiving panadol and nurofen. Cannot believe how amazing this little chickadee has been. I am so very proud of her strength. She is just a little trouper.
Anyway I have to get back to the hospital so good bye for now and keep praying....
