Ella had her surgery

We just got back in from the outpatient clinic with Ella. We took her in around 5:45 this morning, and she was in surgery before 7 am. The doctor came back to our room around 8:30 and said everything had gone well and she had done great. About thirty minutes later, the nurses brought her back to us. She cried a little for the first fifteen minutes or so, but I think it was due mainly to being disoriented and uncomfortable. After this she began opening her eyes and looking around. It is so amazing to see her with eyes looking straight ahead and venturing to the far edges of her face. It is essentially the first time we've really seen her able to do this. She was even smiling a little by the time we left, but she was mainly out of it and sleepy. She is sleeping in mommy's arms even as I type this. Thank you again for all your prayers.
