Praise God! And thank you all for bringing her to the Throne with us! There is, of course, still chance of infection and other issues as she recovers, but we're obviously past the most critical part.
We spent most of the afternoon with Grace before the procedure, since it was about 4 hours later than planned. Just before the surgical team came, she was wide awake and very alert-- more than we've seen her before. It was fun to watch her looking around at us and everything else! Here are a couple pictures.
