Back Home

Mommy and Chloe hanging out before surgery

Chloe being silly with daddy...she thought he looked so funny.

Checking all my girl's vitals

A little nervous

Heading back to surgery...Daddy got to go back until Chloe fell asleep.

After surgery, just out of recovery.

We are now home. Chloe is quite an amazing little girl if I do say so myself. She has been so brave through this whole thing. The surgery took approximately an hour and was unfortunately more invasive than the doctor had hoped. They had to make an incision and put two long pins in her elbow to reattach the bone. She broke part of the growth plate so there was no other choice. The doctor said the surgery went well and that he would cast her arm next week when she has her post op appointment. So far she hasn't been in too much pain but that could be in large part to the two doses of morphine they gave her. She has been snacking and coloring a little (one of her most favorite things to do). Thank you all for your prayers...I'm glad this day is almost over.

....i LIKE morphine!!!
It's great that our kids are sooo resilient!
It's hard to see them go through something so major like a surgery. She's one tough cookie, though!!
