Success in The OR

Hi Carley lovers,

Guest blogger here, Riley, Carleys big sister <3 

I have the most wonderful news to share with everyone who has been supporting and following her story everyday!

So for those of you who don’t know Carley underwent a 4-5 hour surgery to remove the cancerous Tumor in her trachea. Now we all knew Carley would just fly through this surgery but hearing it from the surgeons mouth was 1 million times better.

At approximately 12:15 the Doctor came out while I wasn’t in the room. I slowly walked into the room noticing my mothers head in her hands, terrified at what I didn’t know I instantly stopped in my tracks. My dad noticed my face and quickly said “She’s clear, they got it all out, the surgery went better then anyone could have expected!” Immediately my mother my dad and I were in tears in a group hug. The best news I have honestly ever heard in my entire 19 years on this planet! My baby sister and best friend might I add, was going to be fine! She was going to be fine! 

Carley will be under for a few days and just a little out of it so you will probably hear back from me soon with Carley Updates. But for now I am going to go kiss my little sister and put her jewellery back on (the one thing she asked for).

xoxo <3
