Almost Home!


As you can see, her swelling has gone down enough for her beautiful eyes to shine through a bit! We're in Logan, headed south this morning, so we'll arrive in St. George around 7 pm. Katie will try to go to school tomorrow, and since it's only a half-day, she should be fine. Not sure she's quite up to full days yet, but I think the excitement of being back home and being around friends again MAY be enough to get her through a normal day.

We're still fighting some infection on the right side of her face, but this morning, it looks like it is continuing to improve. The worrisome thing about it is that she can't move her right eyebrow, and I'm almost positive I've seen her move that since the last surgery. So we're not sure what's going on there. The bruising on her leg from where the liposuctioned the fat that was used is still pretty bruised as well, but at least she doesn't limp now, so it must not be quite as sore.

We are READY to have this chapter of life over with, at least for a year! And although we didn't make all the goals we were shooting for, we made significant progress and are feeling grateful for that which was achieved. See you all in St. George real soon!
