I updated the Facebook page throughout the day, evening, and nighttime. It went that long.
12 hours later we got to see Summer again.
I will tell you, this surgery, as much as we were ready and hoping for an easier recovery… Is far harder than the emergency surgery in Champaign.
When we received Summer after her lengthy surgery at CARLE… We had a daughter who was barely conscious, vomiting uncontrollably, and hardly had a memory of any of it. But tonight in Memphis, I have a daughter who is VERY conscious and in pain and is crying that it hurts.
And I know she will remember it.
Tough night… A tough couple of days ahead.
She has her spirit and the nurses all love her attitude. She will get through this.
I will try to write more tomorrow, Nate and I will be relieving Angela in the morning.
