Mary is a Trooper!!!

We are SO happy to say that Mary's surgery went great!!! It took about 2 hours, which is what we expected, but it was nerve racking!! She got a G-tube (feeding tube in her tummy) with a Mic-Key button and a Nissen (prevents reflux from the stomach to the esophagus). She also came out of intubation just fine (that is what we were most worried about). They said she was so strong and brave. She didn't cry very much, if at all. She has 4 little tiny cuts in her tummy which will hopefully heal quickly and then in a few weeks Mary will be back to her normal routine of swimming, going for walks with mommy, and playing with her dog Sam! She is doing very well right now and is watching a Baby Einstien. Thanks to everyone who has been praying for her. Continue to pray that her recovery goes well and that we get to go home soon!
