Alyssa’s Surgery – July 14, 2008

Well, today was the big day. Alyssa went in for jaw surgery. She was a “real trooper”, and never complained or whined, but took this whole experience of braces, multiple doctor visits in Pittsburgh, etc. in stride. I am very proud of her.

Alyssa is crazy, too. She went with her grandmother’s church to the island of Trinidad for an entire week, working a Vacation Bible School in a foreign country! There was no air conditioning, etc. And, she did and missed out on going to Hilton Head Island with us, and it was the week before her surgery. Who would’ve blamed her for taking it easy…but she didn’t.

The 2 days before her surgery were “challenging”. She said she pulled an all-nighter with her cousins and friends in Trinidad on the last night there. Then, once she arrived in Miami, she found that her flight was delayed…delayed…canceled. So, she had to spend the night in Miami. After only 4 hours sleep, she was on a flight to Dallas (why Dallas? she as going to Pittsburgh!).

Anyway, she survived, and did great during the entire surgery and is recovering at home now.
