We were at the hospital pretty much all day today. The doctor's office called and wanted us to come in and meet with the surgeon before we checked into surgery. So we were at the hospital this morning at 10:30. The surgeon gave us more good news - the bone scan looked great. He also answered lots more of my questions and explained more of what was going to happen today - we really do have an incredible doctor! The MRI showed that there was a spot on one of Paige's muscles -so along with lots more tissue, the surgeon also removed a muscle. He said that it wouldn't affect her mobility or her strength though since other muscles will compensate for it. She went in for surgery a little after 1:00 p.m. and came out around 3:00 p.m.. She had a harder time in recovery than she did after last surgery so we didn't actually get discharged from the hospital until 6:00 tonight. She is pretty sore (understandably so) and the pain killers make her quite lethargic which is very unPaige-like. It has been a pretty emotionally draining day in all, but we got a great report from the doctor - everything went just like he hoped it would. We will get the results from the pathology lab next week - which will be the real test of how successful the surgery was. Piper was great today as well - and a big thank you to Frank for helping with her at the hospital - I was able to focus on Paige but keep Piper close by. Also thanks to all of Frank's family for helping with the other kids! I have more I want to write about the miracles I have witnessed this past week, but I will save that for another post because I am too tired and emotionally drained to write about it right now. A huge thank you to all my family and friends who have kept us in thoughts and prayers today - we love you!!!
