A GOOD Report!

Amber's surgery went very well today! This is not the first time I have sat down to write a post with a thankful heart for all the prayers from you all! Praise GOD and thank YOU!

The surgery ran a little long but it was a pretty big surgery!
I reminded myself Amber would want the doctor to take his time and do it right!

She left us well prepared!
I read the schedule to the babies this morning and they all agreed to follow it!
GOOD babies!!

Of course I had Louis Dean with me and everyone knows he is a 'Baby Whisperer' - as our friend, Dawn, calls him!

Lucy got to socialize with Jersey and Shiner today since we spent the night last night!
I did NOT have to walk her when we got home awhile ago!
She was tired and ready to go to bed.

Amber will be released from the hospital tomorrow.
We are in our 'camper home' tonight as I write.
April - former nanny and now family friend - arrived this evening and will be staying at Amber's for two weeks. She is AWESOME with the babies and this enables US to come home at night!
Win! WIN!!

This past year has been one hurdle after another for Amber and her pregnancy, births, NICU, recovery, and now this surgery. As her mother, I can't tell you how grateful I am for all your kind words of encouragement, thoughts, and prayers throughout this journey.

I'm so glad to hear that everything went well! I went over to Amber's blog and read about what her surgery entailed. I had no idea that she was having so many problems after having the babies! No wonder she needed this surgery. I hope it ends up solving her problems and she is able to resume a normal life. Poor girl! She has been through so much.
