Update on Morgan

Thinga have just been nuts around here since Morgan had her surgery! We're so thankful that everything went well and she came home to recover nicely. Here's a big of info from her surgery:

When the DR was about 1/2 way through the surgery he sent the nurse out with an update. Apparently when they got inside her they saw that the extra sinus cavity ran through her carotid artery. That discovery made things a bit more tense and caused the whole thing to take a bit longer.

When all was said and done they told us she's lucky to be alive. He said it was a miracle that with as many infections she was getting in that cavity, it never got swollen enough to block the artery completely or cause it to burst. If it had been left alone, it could have eventually killed her and we never would have known why. Praise God that this doctor was proactive, I don't even want to THINK about the possibilities.

Anyway, the rest of the surgery went smoothly. Her right adenoid was blocking about 80% of her regular sinus passage and her fluid levels in her right ear were off the charts! He drained her ears and removed the adenoids!

Since the surgery we've noticed such an improvement in her breathing and hearing! She's done so well.
