Tuesday, June 2nd

All went well today! Dr. Boop thinks Abby looks great. Her incision is healing nicely-no sign of infection. He said the swelling will come and go for a while and the lack of sleep is common in patients. He is pleased with her progress. I feel a big relief! I figured everything was ok but it's nice to hear someone who knows tell you that everything is ok. While in Memphis we took Abby to see the movie Up! She had a good time and laughed a lot!

We have started weaning her off the steroids-thankfully! She is eating everything in sight and has trouble controlling her emotions. She rides an emotional roller coaster all day! I feel sorry for her b/c I know she doesn't understand what has happened to her and why she feels so bad. We do our best everyday to help her through it but sometimes we don't know what to do-how many hot dogs should you let a kid eat!?! She threw the biggest fit in a store today and I wanted to stand up and tell everyone that she is not normally like this-she had brain surgery! Every day we face new obstacles but God also places numerous blessings in the way too!

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding" Proverbs 3:5

  1. Morgan,
    It is so good to hear that Abby is doing so well. We continue to pray for her and the rest of your family. We are having McKenzie's birthday party this Saturday at the North Complex Pool from 6-8 pm, if you all are feeling up to it, bring the girls and let them swim. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help out.
