YES!

Dot only had two goals for today, to wake up after anesthesia and to have both legs. She met and exceeded them!

I've just gotten word that she is in recovery after a successful surgery. AND they were able to keep the graft short enough so it didn't have to extend into her leg which would have meant a longer scar and having it go under the inguinal ligament which could cause further problems later on.

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.
