    Default Update on gandaughter...

    Thanks to God and all of your prayers, my granddaughter is much better. Words can never express how thankfull we are to all of you special people. Megan actually came home with us tonight and seems to be doing much better.

    For anyone that doesn't know what happened, my 19 year old granddaughter had her tonsils and adnoids taken out a week ago today. Yesterday she started bleeding, we rushed her to the ER and after a little while the bleeding stopped and we took her home. About an hour after I got home my daughter called and said she was taking Megan back to the ER. When I arrived Meg was hemmoraging and she was vomiting blood continuously and my daughter told me they'd called Life Flight. By the time my husband and other daughter arrived there were 3 nurses , 2 doctors and every member of the ambulance crews And ER working on her. When Life Flight arrived they put her out and inserted a tube down her throat to keep her air way clear of blood. It took them about 20 minutes to get her stabilized enough to survive the trip to Des Moines. This was so serious that they told my daughter that she needed to fly on the helicopter with them. They arrived in Des Moines about 25 minutes after take off and used 2 pints of blood on her while in flight. Upon arrival Meg was taken into surgery and her throat was coterized. The surgeon said he'd never pumped so much blood out of a patients stomach as he did Megs.

    Needless to say, this has taken a few years off mine and my husband's lives but it also makes us appreciate our family more then ever.

    To everyone here, give your family extra hugs and kisses and let them know how much you love them...

    Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers...

    Beyond word that this could happen from her surgery last week. What a shock. Thankful that she got such great Trauma care, God and her Guardian Angels were watching over her.

    Prayers and healing light as she recovers. Hugs to you too and her Mom, both of you have to be exhausted.
