Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

My niece had surgery today at the tender age of 3 weeks and change.  She did really well with a very long wait and no food.  Surgery went well and unless something unexpected shows up in her pathology she will be fine after she heals.  The condition she had requires frequent monitoring until she is a preschooler and then periodically through the rest of her life.  It should be fine but it can come back or a related problem can occur.

The hard part now is that some of the things required for her to heal are rough.  I can't be more specific without saying too much but she is going to have a hard few days.

It's a scary thing to go through and I cannot express my relief that things have gone so well.  Now we only need recovery to go well and well, the rest of her life.

Thank God.  It could have been SOOOOOOOOO much worse.

It sounds like it went as well as it could have. I'm glad. I'm off to see my niece this weekend. I now envy you that you live so close to your nieces! You will really be a part of their lives, and a help to their parents. I'm too far and see them too infrequently to be much of a help. I'd be very tempted to move closer, but my brother has a tendency to move a lot, so I'm not going to take that risk.
