Bryn Today

So....Bryn's surgery went great. The dr. was a little worried. Her muscles and her blood vessels were under developed in her index finger. He is very hopeful though that things will be okay. He hasn't "lost a thumb" yet and doesn't expect Bryn to be his first! He still continued with the surgery and is just watching to make sure the circulation stays in it. Her right arm is all bandaged up. Her left arm has a brace on it because of the IV. She hates seeing the nurses. Every time one walks in the room she gets mad and cries. She was in surgery from 7-10:32am. The surgery started around 7:20am this morning. It was very difficult to hand her over to the nurse and walk away. But it made me feel a lot better that Bryn did not cry when we left. So far there have been no tears from me or Tyler!!! That is good! Just lots of prayers! The nurse called about every 45 minutes to update us and tell us that Bryn was doing great. We got to see her 10 minutes after they put her in the recovery room. I got to sit and hold her. She was very out of it and just cuddled with me. She is talking and playing a little more right now (2:36pm).

We just want to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and support. Words canNOT express how thankful and grateful we are for all of our friends and family that have constantly called, written and texted to check on Bryn and us.

Bryn and I are staying over tonight in the hospital. The Dr. will check on her tomorrow and we should be good to go home sometime tomorrow morning/afternoon!! When I get a chance I will post more pictures!!
