: Thank you so much for that up-date, Rebecca! Poor little soul!! It's so distressing when children that age are in pain, because it's difficult to make them understand that it couldn't be helped. What was done, HAD to be done. But - kids are pretty resillient, and hopefully, by the time you visit with her, that beautiful smile of hers will be 'out' again and she will feel much better!!
: Please give her a big cuddle, on our behalf, when you see her and remind her folks that we are thinking of them all. Bless them all.
: Take care, Rebecca - and thanks again.
I will certainly give her a big cuddle from everybody and this time I will take photos!! I promise!!
Lori and Garnet, Ariel's parents, are very grateful for ALL your prayers and support! It was Lori who told the reporter about all of us..:)
Yes, the operation had to be done and Ariel really looks different now. This operation might have to happen every year until she is seven..I am very relieved that she is fine after this one. I was shocked to hear later on that she needed a blood transfusion during her surgery..
