Postop Day 1

GOD HAS BLESSED!  I have to say that first.  Ashley's surgery on Thursday went great and had no complications.  I am sorry for not posting yesterday.  It turned out to be an emotionally exhausting day followed by a physically exhausting night.

All is still going as anticipated with no complications other than the usual painful recovery.

We cannot stress how wonderful God has blessed Ashley by providing the most wonderful surgeon and extended team of caregivers.  The nursing staff at Duke Raleigh Hospital have been awesome! At 7 am when the staff changed out, once again, I commented to Johnny that I cannot believe how blessed we have been with the extremely caring and exceedingly knowledgeable nursing staff.  He sat with tears in his eyes, in agreement.

Folks, please pray today for strength for Ashley.  It will be her first day of therapy.  She has had a rough night with pain, nausea and vomiting, but her team is working diligently with Dr. Hey to find the right combination of meds for her.  She will be required to push through some of the pain today to do her first therapy. We thank you from the depths of our hearts for your prayers and encouragement!  We love you all.

Dr. Hey was in to see Ashley this morning and informed us he had been able to post on his blog about Ashley's surgery.  The following link will tell more about the procedure and shows amazing before and after photos, even 2 on the OR table:

How great is our God...Sing with me, "How Great Is Our God!"
