Adyson's Surgery - Day 4

What an exciting day!

Lots of improvement! They changed her pain meds from morphine to Tynal with Codine and I think that has made a big differnece. She is awake more but has more of a continual better attitude and I think more continuous pain relief. She woke up earlier in the day when Ben was here and Ben started blowing on her feet and teasing her and she smiled! That was the best feeling to see our little Ady playing and smiling. I couldn't get enough.

I had said a little prayer that morning that if she could just be able to open one eye today that would be such a blessing. Kathi brought the kids by in the afternoon to see Ady and the moment they walked in the door, Ady opens her one eye for the first time. It was like she couldn't miss seeing them and tried her hardest to pry that eye open. It was wonderful! She smiled at them and talked to Caleb, and just kept watching everybody. The rest of the day she was more easily consolible and getting her down to nurse and just overall moving her got easier and less painful for her. She is starting to move her head around and hold it up good. Ben held her for awhile in his lap till she started falling asleep. She is improving and it feels so good to see that happening.

Another day down...

Sweet Ady! I am so happy that everything is going well. Kelsi has been keeping me updated, but it is good to see pictures and hear straight from the Mama. I love you and your family and am praying that every day gets easier for Miss Ady. Kisses for that baby and the whole family!

It's wonderful that she's doing so much better, I'm sure with each passing day things will be changing. Soon she'll be runing around like crazy and you'll wonder where the time went.
Hugs Kisses and prayers.
Love to all
Aunt Linda
