Mary's recuperation

Mary is recovering well from her operation to relieve her of a locked jaw. Sally is helping her with her exercises, which involves forcing her back teeth apart with 12 lollipop sticks. Without these exercises her jaw would lock again (in fact it started doing just that over the weekend when Mary was unsupervised for a day). The bleeding has stopped, and she's feeling more human although her face is still very swollen. Today she had her nasal feeding tube removed, and is allowed to drink milk. Tomorrow she will be able to start on liquid meals. Thank you for praying for her.
