Surgery is over and Adele' is doing just fine. Her Uncle John (Matt's twin) was the nurse anesthetist for her surgery so he wheeled her down to surgery on her bed extra fast for the thrill of it. It was nice for her to have a familiar face making it seem a bit more like a family gathering than surgery prep.
We got home late last night and were able to get a good nights rest. The pain meds are pretty much awesome. Brothers and sisters are trying not to be jealous of all the extra treats and attention broken bones can bring, including (but certainly not limited to...) sleeping in a nest of pillows on a full size bed in the Spare Oom all by herself. Adele' has been asking for people to sign her cast- and then writing herself little messages on it too. A dress that fits around a cast and sling.
For all of these mercies, I praise God.
Thank you to all who have been praying and leaving little love notes for us. It meant the world to us.
