Today is two and a half weeks since Anna's emergency appendectomy, and I just wanted to say that I have never seen someone recover from surgery so quickly! These photos (courtesy of Dennis Baker Photography) were taken just two days following Anna's surgery (dress rehearsal for the musical). So many people were praying for Anna, and I thank all of you! My mind kept going back and forth between being thankful that this surgery was not holding Anna back in any way, to being worried that she was doing way too much too soon.
As far as we can tell, neither the surgery nor the musical (with it's demanding schedule) has had any effect on Anna in regards to the arthritis and uveitis. All remains calm on the those fronts. Several appointments coming up in the future, though, to check everything out. Eye appointment near the end of this month, post-surgery appointment in early April, and pediatric rheumatologist appointment in early June.
