Ruthie's Surgery

Ruthie's surgery went well. It was a little longer than expected because the track that was removed (near her ear) was much longer and deeper than the ENT surgeon expected. This surgery was done to correct a birth defect near Ruthie's ear. Since she has been with us, it has been infected twice. This last infection took 3 different antibiotics to heal her. She was in so much pain and the cyst would grow larger and larger until it burst. Once, she passed out from the pain! We are glad that Ruthie will feel much better now. She is sleepy and quiet, but is eating and drinking. By tomorrow, we expect her to be back to her normal giggly self!

Thank you for all who prayed for her!

In Christ, Laura
