Mercy- 1 day Post Op.

Yesterday was a long, long day. All went well, but it was long.

Mercy went into surgery at 12:30. The "two hour" surgery lasted until 4. Dr. Elluru was able to get everything from near the cheek and ear, and cover all but less than 1/2 inch of the scarring. Once the swelling goes down, I think that area will look great.

At the temple/ eye, he was able to get the part that hung over the eyelid pull up so now the eyebrows are symmetrical. Most of the scarring remains, unfortunately, but he thinks that future procedures ("Derm Abrasion") will help make them less noticeable.

She was quite nauseous last night, but seems to have recovered today and is eating more. As long as she can keep down solids we will be released this morning. The swelling is also worse today. Once all that goes down I will update.

Thanks for praying! Keep them up. We still have a long way to go.


  1. Thanks Lord.

    Hang in there momma.

  2. How is she doing today? I just passed you a blog award. I know it's not high on your priority list today, but I hope it blesses you. Getting to know you through the blog world has surely blessed me! Lisa~
