Tough Day, Resting Peacefully
Sarah’s surgery went well.  Dr. Molik is an incredibly gifted surgeon as well as a truly kind and compassionate caregiver.  We really cannot thank her enough for all that she has done to get the necessary arrangements in place so quickly and for her willingness to ensure that Sarah’s unique needs have been met. The anesthesiologist was great, too.  He listened carefully and seemed to have a very good understanding of Sarah’s complicated circumstances.  Given that Sarah’s anesthesia protocol is not typical, we must realistically anticipate that a new doctor may not be comfortable following it.  And he was not.  But we do know that he did what he believed was best, and that is really all that we can expect. Thankfully, Sarah awoke without paralysis ... but very sadly she was in terrible pain.  They transferred her to the pediatric intensive care unit; and after several hours of trial and error, they now have her resting peacefully.  They ended up giving her a medication that she has never had and is only given in the ICU, so we hoping and praying that she will awake without complications and that this may be a good treatment option for her in the future. So if you would remember Sarah in your prayers tonight, we would be so very appreciative. Blessings, Larry, Jeanne, & Krista

    Hi, Blessings to all of you! Your faith and
    perseverance, inspires me greatly… I tend
    to be highly emotional and sometimes,
    find it hard to handle difficult and stressful
    situations. I am glad that Sarah’s

    We are so grateful that Sarah came through the surgery well. We are praying that the pain medication continues to ease her pain with no side effects and that she will soon be feeling much better and able to come home to Alice Eloise.
