Successful Surgery

We made it home today by lunch which was great! Christian has made it through with flying colors. He's not even taking pain medicine. I am not sure why. He has some swelling on one side of his face but feels good and is on the road to recovery. He has a plastic splint in his mouth that may come out by Christmas. We just have to see how quick it heals. He has had a lot of bone put in his gum line. His doctor explained what all he did during the 3 hour surgery and I could never explain it. It is unbelievable what they can do in this day and time. We have received so many calls and texts asking about him. Thanks to all of you that have prayed for him and left comments or checked on him in any way. I truly appreciate it. It is great to be home. Hospital life stinks. I don't know how people like the Dunn's make it like they do. Hats off to them and their strength.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!!

You know me, I'm always running behind and a day late-dollar short.
Anyway, I'm so glad to hear Christian is doing well, and on his way home! I'm sure he will be fine, especially with you and your family beside him!!! I bet his little sis, even has taken on the job of being his personal nurse!!!She is such a loving, beautiful child! I hope you and yours has a very wonderful Thanksgiving, and if you need me--just call! I love you all.
