1 day post OP.

Well, we've made it one day post Op. Alyssa is doing fantastic. She has taken VERY little pain meds. She has been in really good spirits all day - no complaining or anything. We went into the hospital yesterday at 11am and she went right in and had to change and have all her vitals taken.
Then we sat there and talked to the nurses, Anesthesiologists and the Dr.s. I think we have a guardian angel - his name is Dr. Ingle. I don't know why but when i saw him I felt totally at peace and knew she was in good hands. Not that I doubt the skill of Dr. Martin - I don't, she's terrific too but there is just something about Dr. Ingle. Everyone was sooooo nice and very kind to Alyssa. She was in for about 1 1/2 hours and then we met her in recovery. She was pretty quick to bounce back. She was off oxygen right away and was ready to have out the IV within 15 minutes (they didn't take it out until she proved she could hold down liquids. She drank about 7 oz of water and then they began to discharge her. We left for home around 5:30pm. We were blessed with food from two wonderful friends (Thank you both!!!!!!) and we didn't have to cook all day today either. We feel so wrapped in God's arms right now.
Thank you all for all of your prayers - we feel the peace and love being poured out on behalf of our family. The Biopsy results will be given to us at our follow up appt. on Feb 26, 2009.
HOpefully I'll be able to post on the Alphabet tomorrow!!!!
