It seems as though Anna is finally back to her normal self. The beginning to the middle of last week were really rough as she seemed to be in a lot of pain. She was also waking, crying in the middle of the night about every two hours . It felt like we had a newborn once again. It was rough. By Wednesday or Thursday, she was started sleeping through. Steve thinks she just got herself into a routine and was waking because of that instead of pain. She isn't taking pain medicine anymore, unless she complains of her mouth hurting.
We are also seeing some delightful results from her surgeries. She does seem to be hearing better. She seems to be hearing more of what is going on around her. Her talking has also improved and her voice is even a little softer and sweeter. We've heard from others that her ears would be more sensitive to sound, but we haven't seen that too much though. We took her back to church yesterday for the first time since the surgery and she did want to be held during the worship. I asked her if the music was too loud and she shook her head yes. She didn't plug her ears though.
We are so thankful to have her surgery over with and to be seeing results from it. Thanks again to all who have prayed for her. It is great to have our little girl back to feeling herself.
