So, we were given a date for surgery and started to prepare which includes updating Annie's home medical chart, researching the procedure and faxing information to the anesthesiologist so they are aware of Annie's conditions and take the necessary precautions in putting her under. All was set and then, they changed the date on us. Which would have been fine but Scott was heading out on a business trip that was already booked and he couldn't get out of it. Ugg, there goes our rock, Annie and I would have to do this on our own. Well, not exactly on our own, we had wonderful Grammy to come with us and our amazing Miss Lauren to watch James and Grace and my wonderful sister to stay with us overnight to make sure everything was OK after surgery. We are so blessed to have so much love and support!

It's now 3 days after surgery and Annie is doing great! She had a TON of bruising but didn't have much pain at all, she is sore at the end of the day but it's well controlled with just a dose of motrin. She has been on her feet walking, standing and even rode her bike for a short time. We can see a change already in the way she sits and stands, she's so much straighter now that her left leg isn't so tightly pulled in she is able to weight bear symmetrically. In time we hope to get her stronger and back to where she was at this time last year.
