My Daughter & A Bunion













Before Surgery

After Surgery

Today, my "Sweet daughter", Maranda had foot surgery for a bunion. She has to have both feet done but they will only do one at a time. The Dr. said she did really good and he said cosmetically she will be very happy, but he was glad he did it now, because the cartlidge in that joint was just about gone. He had to cut the bone and then put a screw in the joint and a steel wire in the toe. She is doing good, but is still pretty sleepy and numb. He said the numbness will go away tomorrow, so that is when the real pain will come. She was so pitiful. She is a Mom & Dads girl even though she is all grown up, so when she saw us after the surgery she just cried. She requested potato soup and cornbread since she hadn't eaten. For some reason, anytime my children are sick that is the request. She will be out of work for 2 weeks to recooperate. I asked her if she cared if I blogged about her surgery. She said, "I look awful, Mom, but maybe it might help someone else that is thinking of doing this." Isn't that so thoughtful? Please keep her in your prayers.

Also, please keep my "sweet son" in your prayers. He has had 2 shoulder surgeries and neither one has worked. He has been going through this 2 1/2 years.

Maranda looks so sweet in the pictures. It appears that she is appeasing you. I can just imagine her thinking, please stop, I have on this dorky hat, and blue is just not my color...or something to that effect. tell her and corey that I love them, and I've been praying for her.

Valerie,

I will have your daughter in my prayers. My mother had both feet done and it is a bit painful recuperating, but once it is done, she will feel as good as new :0)

Thank you for visiting...
