- WanYing's left hand and toes don't need any intervention (hooray!)
- The indentation of a band on her right calf isn't causing any problems and unless it starts applying pressure and she starts walking on the outside of her right foot, it shouldn't need any loosening (hooray!)
- It's a good time for surgery on WanYing's right hand (hooray!)
Oh, and it as long as there are no weird complications with surgery or anesthesia, WanYing should be able to come home Monday night - isn't that amazing?!?
Sasha's cleft palate - this is a part of her, and has been a defining part of her for her entire life. And now all of that is about to change. Good change. But good change that still comes with some loss.
But WanYing is already reassuring us that this is right. Sunday night, the day before her appointment, while I was putting her to bed, WanYing kept holding my finger and trying to drill it into her sticky hand, as if we were going to separate the fingers right then and there. I know she doesn't know what's happening, and I know that there is going to be a lot of pain and a lot of really hard work in her future as she figures out how to use her new hand - but I'm grateful that she's already starting to understand that those fingers are going to come apart.
Monday is going to be a big day.
