Sugery was a sucess!


Yesterday, Alenna had her surgery. She went in at 11:00 am and came into recovery around 12:15. The surgery went well, she had to have 7 silver caps done on her molars in the back and several cavities filled in her front teeth. She also had to have one tooth extracted. It was not the one that we thought was going to have to be pulled, the tooth the Dr. thought he would have to pull turned out to be OK, but the one on the bottom that has been hurting her so much was dead. When they pulled it they found a large abscess that they didn't know was there. I am so thankful that they found it and were able to treat it. I can see the Lord's hand in this from the very beginning. It truly was a miracle that we were able to get her into the Dr. so quickly and that she was able to have her surgery so soon. It might have saved her life. Thank you for praying for Alenna and us, she is doing really well and is already back to her old self!
