so many things. Chief among them is this:
Sunday night the doctors still didn’t know what was wrong with Aviana. They offered to medicate her with morphine or whatever we wanted, to make her more comfortable. I refused it at that time, reasoning she was still able to sleep, and I didn’t want her to unnecessarily loopy.
The surgeon told me after surgery, that if we had chosen to medicate, they probably never would have figured out what was wrong!
The drugs would have messed with her system just that much more to make her body hide the problem that much more. Praise God they did finally figure it out and now it’s fixed and all she has to do is recover..
