Out of Surgery

Lindy went down for her PDA surgery today around 12pm and was back by 1:45pm. The surgeon said she did really well. They were able to do it laparoscopically. The surgeon is only one of 3 people in the country who does this surgery laparoscopically. He came back with pictures of her PDA before he put the staple in and after he put the staple in. He also gave us one of the staples to show us what he used. It's really tiny!

He said it will take about three days to really see how she responds to the surgery. We are hoping that it will really help her lungs and ventilator settings.

Miss Lindy has had a busy week with two surgeries. Hopefully she is DONE!! She has done great with them. She is a fighter!

I am so thankful she has come out of both surgeries doing so well. Yes, she is a great little fighter, along with her brother. How awesome she has 1 out of the 3 doctors in the country - very impressive Miss Lindy!

Love,
Anita
