On the mend

Well, the worst is over. Little Hannah had her surgery very early this morning to fix the cut on her hand. They did a skin graft, taking skin from her inner wrist and suturing it to her finger. She had some wonderful nurses caring for her and really seemed comfortable with them. She only cried twice-when the anesthesiologist and the doctor came in. When it was time to take her back, she kept saying she wanted to go home, but she didn't cry. She was up and awake soon after and acted like nothing ever happened. Best of all, she got a yummy popsicle to eat! Her wrist and finger are wrapped up pretty well and we'll go back to see the doctor in 2 days. For now, we just need to keep it dry and clean. If all goes according to plan, she should be healed up again in 2 or 3 weeks. Isn't it amazing how God made our bodies to heal themselves? I am so thankful Hannah is home and doing well. His a picture of her after she arrived home-along with her goofy big brother on the left there!

What a trooper she is!


  1. Amy,

    God is awesome!! I also believe in Mother natural. I'm so thankful she is doing so well. Children heal very fast. Please kiss her booboo for me. I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I hope she is healing quickly and feeling better. Happy Thanksgiving.


  3. What an answer to prayer. We will keep her in our prayers as she is healing. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving.
