Surgery

Eva's surgery which was planned for Friday of this week got moved, so she actually had it done Monday of this week. All is well and she did great. John and I decided to stick with the Doctor who has been treating her here locally. He is doing a phenomenal job and Eva loves the him and his staff. 
The surgery which actually seemed more like a procedure was so quick and easy. She was numbed from her mid calf down and then the Doctor made a small cut into her Achilles tendon. This released her foot and will help to make everything go back in to then normal position it should be in. She was immediately casted again and will be in this last set for three weeks. Then we will be starting her shoes. I felt so relaxed during the whole thing. John was able to stay the whole time, 
(I stepped out due to my problem with fainting at the littlest sight of blood) I came in just as they were starting to cast her. I am so thankful for the competent nurses and her amazing doctor for being so professional and yet making us feel at home, and letting us be a part of the whole procedure. Eva is happy and smiling in my arms as write this, we are one lucky family.
