From the Miles family...
The surgery was successful. We will continue to wait for the swelling to go down and pray for her to regain more feeling. Today was difficult for her emotionally as the reality of the situation began to set in. We are overwhelmed and very grateful for the outpouring of support from the community. We feel so blessed.
Thank you all for the prayers, get well wishes, cards and donations!
