Ellie got through her surgery with flying colors. Here she is once she got into her room:
Don’t let that sleepy little face fool you. She dozed off and on for a little while, but then she didn’t want to go to sleep. The little rascal fights going to sleep, even when she needs it!
I suspect the next day or two will be a bit of a trial for her Mom and Dad, while they try to keep her occupied. She had to lay flat for the first 24 hours after surgery, and she was upset about that. She wants to play with her IV line… she’s the typical little kid!
But the main thing is the surgery is over, it went well, and now the process starts of healing, then therapy to re-train her muscles and help her walk.
And that’s what it’s all about… Helping Ellie Walk!
