Thank you everyone for praying for Blakely during her surgery today. It went very well and she did great. We waited most of the day for it to happen, but it finally did. The surgeons only had to open a small part of her incision rather than the whole thing. They cleaned it out with antibiotic wash. The surgeon said it didn't look as bad as it could have. They put a sponge in the open wound and a are using a wound vacuum over that. This seals off the area and the vacuum pulls the nasty stuff out. She will have to have the sponge replaced in two days which means yet again another surgery and then possibly again on Saturday. They are continuing to treat her with aggressive antibiotics.
When I left tonight she was waking up and seemed to be doing well.
We are going to let her rest tonight and visit her again in the morning where hopefully she won't be in any pain. The surgeon said this infection (as long as it clears up) should only prolong our little journey by a week or so. Let's cross our fingers and toes!
