First of all, I want to thank all of you for checking in today and also for your thoughts and prayers. We felt every one.
Marissa is doing well. She dealt really well with the anesthesia. We got into a PICU room about 2 hours after she came out of surgery. She is resting comfortably as long as people don't mess with her. We are able to give her pain meds when we feel she needs them, so that is a blessing. The doctor feels that, barring any complications, she should only be here 2 to 3 days. Another blessing!
Until Marissa is discharged, I only plan on updating the blog if something changes drastically. So, hopefully the next time you'll hear from me, we'll be home. :)
Thanks for the continued prayers.

Check back often as I believe there is some good news that her mom, Erika, is going to share!
