She has had a lot of swelling and bruising on her face (it got a lot worse than what shows in the picture below), which we were told to expect. But she hasn't been self-conscious or worried. On the second morning after surgery, her eyes were completely swollen shut and Kevin had to carry her in to her doctor's office for a follow-up appointment because she couldn't see to walk. Her eyes were only slightly improved after the appointment but she still insisted she wanted to go with her dad to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.
Clara, your positive outlook and love of life, despite setbacks, will serve you well in life. You are one tough little girl. I am so proud of you!
