Izzy and Jim came home early afternoon yesterday. She was still on a lot of medication, so quite groggy. But she was eating and a bit chatty after a couple hours.
She slept 10 hours straight last night, managed to get out of bed on her own and came into our room at 6am. Other than a few tears when we had to give her the pain medication, she's been a very happy girl. She asked for me to take her on a walk this morning, so the 5 younger kids and I walked about 3 miles this morning. (Izzy was in a stroller, of course!)
We came home, had lunch and now she is playing Legos with her siblings; well, the best she can with double casts on her arms! : )
She is so obviously happy to be home. All the kids are so happy to have her home. Now we go on with our new normal for the next 6 weeks until the casts come off.
Thank you to all who remembered and prayed for our little girl. The surgeon was very happy, Jim actually had a better experience then anticipated and best of all Isabel had no post-op trouble and adjusted to these enormous casts quite well. Praying for continued healing!!
