Thank you all for your well wishes for my sister. DeAnne made it through her surgery with flying colors. She is one strong girl. After spending a big portion of the day at the hospital we finally got to see her. She looked...well...she looked swollen. But, all in all she was in good spirits. She talked a bit, she drank some juice from a straw (once someone helped the straw into her mouth), even laughed a little. She should be able to go home tomorrow. Yay! No pictures until she approves some. My brother did take one, but I am thinking exposure to the whole world may not be what she had in mind.
Anyway, thank you for your prayers and well wishes. We all appreciate it very much!
