Jemma had surgery this morning to get a tube inserted into her chest which will replace the need for IV's in her arm. The tube runs from her chest, upto her neck and back down to her heart. Medications can be given and blood can be withdrawn from the tube. Everything went well during the surgery. After the surgery she woke up and was back to her old self. She immediately told me not to touch or look at her and that she wanted to go back to her room. She is a strong child and I'm thankful for that.
After arriving back at the room she had a few bites to eat, her new tube
was tested and then she went to sleep. I spent much of the day on the
computer. I even participated in some blog
hops this morning during her surgery. I figured I just had to keep going
with something as opposed to sitting there and worrying.
I added this late, so I will put it on the next post also. If you would like to follow updates on Jemma through facebook, click on the like button for Highhill Homeschool.
