Opening Incision

So in less than an hour they will be opening part of her incision. They are going to give her Versed and Demerol. They have already put a topical numbing creme on her incision and the skin around the area. I just hate that she has to go through more not to mention the scar from this. It will heal on it’s own open.

This is her incision this morning as you can see there is something under the skin….most likely pus. Bad news is I am alone here. Brian went home last night. Perhaps it won’t hurt her as much as I think it will.

They will be opening the part right above her belly button that has the black marker around it.

We got out and did a small stroller ride just up here on the floor. As you can see her hat is pulled down over her eyes. Even at 2 I truly believe she is depressed.

We need prayers.

I have been following Ava's story for over a year and my heart just aches for her and your family. I will be praying for Ava and your family. I started following when Sofie Miller was born. Her dad is from my hometown. These kids are amazing.

Sitting at work and praying for Ava and for you Terri. I pray that you have strength for today as you are there by yourself and are Ava's rock.
