Allison's Update 08/28 - 12 Days Post Op

Allison is slowly doing better each and every day. She still relies heavily on her medication to help keep her comfortable throughout the day, which is to be expected at this point. She is getting out more often now with trips to Walmart and to craft stores (to keep her busy and refocus her pain). She has even gone out to dinner a couple times! These activities really tire her out easily so we keep them to a minimum. 

We will be removing her bandages this weekend. It makes me and John nervous but Allison cannot wait and has been counting down the days!!! lol  One more step in the recovery process. =)

Allison has thoroughly enjoyed the cards, flowers and gifts she has received. They truly made her feel very special.

We are grateful for the support we have received from family and friends. It is times like this that make you realize the special people in your life.

We will continue to send updates once a week (or more) until she is back on her feet and gone to school!! (which she is really looking forward to)!

This is a picture of Allison going on a walk tonight at the park. Did I tell you the surgery grew her about 2 inches?! She is just a wee bit shy as tall as her dad now!! (5'7") That is pretty tall for a 13 year old!! =)
