Surgery--Boston--Day Three

Riley's surgery went as planned this morning. Dr. M ended up doing a lip adhesion on both sides to get them as symmetrical as possible and closed her gumline. She was pretty fussy went we got to see her in the PACU, but I think she was just hungry! She took 2oz glucose by syringe in the PACU then took 2oz milk by bottle when we got to our room. Riley then rested some before taking 2.75oz milk again by bottle. She is resting quietly now...I hope she is able to rest throughout the night and is not in much pain. The staff here is great and I know that we made the best decision by coming here! Right now Riley has a gauze that we keep saturating with iced saline to reduce swelling. I can't wait until it comes off tomorrow so I can get a good look at her sweet face! Thanks everyone for all of your prayers...please continue to pray for a quick recovery and as little pain as possible...

Oh, and Dr. M said we could probably come home after we're discharged on Saturday (Brock is very excited about that)!
