Mandy is out of surgery. She is doing well, and we have been able to control her pain with a mild pain killer. The doctor said she was a super patient... I think she "buttered" him up with her note she gave to him before surgery. Really, she just has a wonderful, grateful,and loving heart, and she wanted to share with her doctor the appreciation she felt for his skill and hard work and for her "new" ear. This surgery should conclude her ear reconstruction; however, we have at least one follow up visit to Little Rock probably sometime next week.
When she is feeling up to it, we will take and then post pictures of her new ear. Thank you all for the prayers that you have prayed on her behalf over the last year. We have certainly felt them, and we are confident that they have blessed our wonderful surgeon's hands.
