mm's ordeal

abcess in lymph node...noticed it on saturday, golf ball sized knot on her neck and running fever. tried to treat with antibiotics, didn't work, wednesday the ENT admitted us to batson for surgery. she was so pitiful...just crying and we could tell she felt terrible.

thursday morning after surgery playing in the hospital playroom with her daddy...feeling much better. she would only have to be hooked up to the IV pump twice a day for medicine. she also got some medicine for pain that day, bless her little heart...


headed home friday! we were all SOO happy!



we bought sugar cookie ingredients the week before, but she never felt like making them and i kept promising her when she felt better we would make them! she held me to it about 3 hours after she got home! i wish i had a pic of her cookies...that post would be titled "what happens when you give a 3 year old a giant variety pack of sprinkles" thank you for all the prayers! we sure felt them. i can't tell you what all the calls, emails and fb messages meant to me. i guess the best way to describe it is that it felt like a cozy blanket when you're cold....the comfort of knowing all those people were talking to the Father on our behalf... we thank you all and each day mm and i are saying, "thank you Jesus for making me well!" ***and a very special thanks to both of mm's grandmothers for dropping everything and driving 4 hours to be with us. and missy for keeping (or should i say spoiling?) william ALL day wednesday. we love all 3 of you! (as well as the sweet friends who offered to keep william...does that offer still stand? haha)
