There's no place like home

We've clicked our ruby slippers and we're home and happy. Last night about midnight she really woke up and was acting much better. Today, she is almost back to herself. You can tell it hurts her to cough...imagine that. This is also the first time she's experienced barfing without it coming up her nose. She is acting very tired, I think she might just have over done it a little today...

The nurse came in the morning and removed her dressing, which wasn't terribly pleasant, but not as bad as I thought it would be. She has some bleeding afterward but not too much. They wanted us to stay for the day to make sure no more started. The doctor was so concerned, he came back and made a special visit to see her today bc he said he just couldn't get her off his mind. His nurse also called every two hours to check on her.

She, of course, charmed EVERYONE today.

There is more to tell, but I've literally only been home about half an hour. I'll post more later and also share our versed video and a drawing for some understanding of the hole in her mouth.

Today was my Grandma's funeral that I was not able to attend and I just need some time to process and grieve, but I think that is on the backburner for the time. Thank you for all your comments and ecspecially your prayers!!!


  1. Glad to hear that you are home! Praying that she continues to do so well and be pain free! It seems like this type of surgery would be so painful!

    Praying for you as you miss your grandma too! I'm sorry that you had to miss her funeral. Hang in there and know that I'll be praying and thinking of you!

  2. Wow, I had no idea you'd be home so soon. Yay!!! Glad she is starting to feel better. Rest up and relax!

  3. Sorry to hear about your grandmother, you sure have had a lot to deal with lately. Glad Lill is home and feeling better, keep us posted.

  4. YAY for home! Glad to hear she's feeling better.

  5. Wow! I can't believe you're home! That's awesome. Hope Lillian gets rested and healed ASAP!!
