Dr. Daley just came to tell us that he is all done with Lydia's surgery. They were able to separate all of her fingers. He said that her ring finger that was under her middle finger wasn't doing very well. When the other fingers were pinking up, that one was turning purple. He said that he's hoping it's spasms, but there is a possibility that it won't make it. They had to take a skin graft, but they took it from her arm, under the cast, so all the pain will be in the same place. He said we'll have to come back in a month to take the cast off and at that time, he'll be able to tell us more. Because her middle finger has so much bulk, it will need to have another surgery to remove some of that - maybe sometime in January or February. He said that her hand was about as complicated as it gets. I'm so thankful that God gave him such wonderful skills.
