Boston surgery..

 Today Jordan had the 1st of 2 surgeries  on her face to help her facial palsy. During the surgery a nerve from her left leg was connected to a nerve from the RIGHT side of her face and then threaded into the left side of her face. 3 hours and 5 incisions later she is doing great! The largest incision is on the right side of her face, one on the left side of her face, one on the inside of the upper lip, and 2 on the lower part of her left leg.
The only real complaint she has is the face dressing and her lip swelling! Unfortunately, the dressing has to be worn for the next 3-4 days and the swelling will get worse before it gets better:(
On another note if you ever travel to Boston ALWAYS ask the cab driver if he knows where he is going!!!  This morning the cab we took wanted us to tell him how to get to where we were going!! For those of you who know me personally, well ya know how that went!
I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers!


  1. Great news! I know with my surgery doctors said swelling meant everything was healing as it should . . .hope this is the same :) Saying my prayers I know you have to be one proud and worried Mama . . .I will continue to keep you all in my prayers!!

  2. I have been following your blog of your daughter's amazing progress! She is one courageous young lady! I have been praying for Jordan since the first day I read your blog.
