So many updates!!

First off, Paige's surgery went well! She had her palate repaired on July 16th. After not eating for 2 1/2 days and being on liquid diet and then soft diet for 3 weeks, she is now starting to eat real food again. She really didn't have any issues eating most of the time. She had no interest in a bottle for 2 1/2 days after surgery. She remained on IV and morphine for the entire duration until the last day we were there. It was not as bad as I thought it would be but it wasn't pleasant either. She had a breathing tube in for the first 24 hours. Her IV infratrated on the last day so it had to be removed. :( She was back to smiling the day after surgery but wasn't really herself for a few days. She did REALLY well with the no-no bands. She played, crawled and EVEN STARTED WALKING while having them on. Best part of all, a week after surgery, SHE PASSED ALL OF HER HEARING EXAMS! No more ear issues hopefully! YEAH!!! We have started to transition her to whole milk now but it hasn't been as easy as it was with the other two. I think it's a comfort food for her.

All in all, she's doing fabulous! Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts! We appreciate them all. We found out the number of people praying for us and it was absolutly amazing! Hundreds of people to say the least. Churches that we didn't know about had her on their prayer list and much more. I really do appreciate it all!

Further updates:
