Ferris Wheel bound!

Friday we went for a walk down Broadway and went to the 3 story ToysRus. Sarah found the giant ferris wheel in the middle and wanted to go for a ride so Mommy and Sarah went while Riley and I watched. Yesterday we went to David and Debbie's house for lunch and afterwards went to central park to play. David and Debbie are friends of ours that we met up here at Dr. Waner's office. Here is a picture of Sarah on the ferris wheel and a picture of us in the park.

In the Park

Yesterday was a great day! The weather was perfect so we spent the day at central park, one of our favorite places! We took the girls to the zoo and then found a grassy area with large rocks and spent the rest of the afternoon playing and relaxing in the shade! Riley took that chance to lay back in the stroller and nap in the breeze! Sarah used her wonderful imagination to entertain us with songs and skits...we thought we would put one up of her singing....Enjoy, God is Good!

Breakfast of Champions

This morning I got up and made bacon,egg,and cheese bagels. I asked Sarah if she wanted one and she said "no daddy I want some pizza" well we had a slice in the fridge so Sarah had a very healthy breakfast.Ha.
She is feeling good with just a little bit of pain from the stitches. Here are a few pictures from this morning. The red area on her face is from the fraxil laser and it's shiny because it's slathered with bacitracin ointment.
God is good.

Surgery was Successful!

Today was surgery day and was very successful. Dr. Waner was able to take a good portion of scaring out of Sarah's lip and bring the lip out some to help make her bottom lip look more full with what he described as a certain way of stitching it up. Dr. Waner also did some fraxil laser to help smooth out the scaring on the rest of her face. Sarah woke up from surgery the best a three year old could wake up from surgery and after some serious promising and bribery we were able to get her to drink some pediolyte and eat some crackers. We arrived back at the apartment a few minutes ago and all in the Porter house are in need of a nap. Thank you for your prayers and would like to say a special thank you to Hometown Hero's back home. Here is a picture of Sarah post surgery and a picture of Sarah with Dr. Waner a few minutes after surgery.

Back in the Big Apple

Today we flew back to Manhattan for another surgery for Sarah. Our flight landed around 10 am and we were in Dr. Waner's office by 11:30 for a visit with him before surgery. We got a picture of Sarah and Dr. Waner which is one of the few one's we have of them together. After the Dr. looked at Sarah she told him thank you, when he went to shake her hand goodbye she went and gave him a big hug. I think it caught him off guard and was pretty cute. Surgery is tomorrow and is scheduled to start at 10 am. Please pray that surgery goes well and that the Dr. does the best possible job he can. God is good.
