Throat surgery went well today

Oct 5 outpatient throat surgery went well. It was a dual-purpose surgery. Part of it was cosmetic, and that went well. The other part was a bonus that the surgeon was able to fix after he opened her up. The skin on her throat had attached to her trachea, so whenever she swallowed, the scar on her throat would move quite a lot. It was uncomfortable. And if my understanding is correct, there was also some muscle tissue that should have come together in front of the trachea, but was apart. So the surgeon fixed that as well. I didn't think there was any muscle over the trachea, but her tracheostomy was quite low. And I'm not a doctor, so what do I know? Tonight Denise's scar is already looking better than it was this afternoon. Thanks to our neighbor for driving Denise to the surgery, thanks to the school's Parent Teacher Fellowship for arranging effortless meals and beautiful flowers!

Reading all of this good news makes me so happy I am just having a good cry. The Lord surely has richly blessed us all, as your roller coaster year has shown so well. How wonderful that the new normal is turning out to be very much like it was before all of this started, but with ever more joy and appreciation. Special blessings to all the people who are continuing to help, and those who have added lovely special things like Disneyland passes to your life.
