Copying and pasting from an email I sent out to family last night.

We're home from Children's. Emma's surgery was scheduled for 2:30 but
when we got there at 12:30 they rushed us through check-in because the
patient scheduled before her was rescheduled.

It took a little longer than last time and the surgeon said that the
site was totally flat and showed no sign of having the procedure done
before. He then said that he ended up having to use double the amount
he used in her September surgery and that it looked good, but not
great. Gah. Not exactly what we wanted to hear, but last time it
looked great right afterwards and didn't stick, so maybe good will be
good enough.

Emma came out of anesthesia really well--not as much confusion as last
time and is comfortable as of right now. We expect that tonight will
be uncomfortable, as last time, but hopefully not as bad since she
knows what to expect.

And, as of this morning, I am happy to say that she has had far less discomfort than last time. Yea! Now we begin the one month countdown until the ultrasound to be sure the deflux doesn't cause any blockage and then two months later for another VCUG to see if it was successful.

Oh, and you know what she chose from the gift shop?

Glad to hear that things were a little easier on Emma this time around. Fingers and toes crossed for a good recovery and better results in a few weeks.

So glad she's bouncing back so quickly and experiencing less discomfort. Crossing my fingers that everything has worked perfectly this time and you're done with this for good.

Hooray on her knitting, too. That's just heartwarming, isn't it?

Hugs to you, and her, and everyone.

I am SO glad it was a little easier on her this time and hopefully this WILL be the time that "sticks". I bet it'll be a long few months! LOVE the yarn!
