KayTar is healing up wonderfully!
She is off the narcotics.
Her g-button site is looking great. No redness or inflammation.
She isn't experiencing any tenderness with her feeds.
Her biopsy bandage came off today and it is healing nicely. She's hardcore now, what with the belly piercing and wicked leg scar.
Chances are, she will be back in school next week!
She still has a touch of the death breath from the T&A surgery. It is a sad day when you think your kiddo has a dirty diaper, but alas, you realize it is just the smell of her not-so-sweet morning breath. Blech!
She still isn't taking much of anything by mouth, a few sips of fluid per day and today she had a Pringle or two, but she's still getting everything she needs.
All in all, the recovery has been so much easier than I feared. Outside of a few heartbreaking moments like waking up post-op and saying, "I'm broken." or drawing that crying self-portrait, we've both fared well. She's handled it all in typical KayTar-fashion, with smiles and giggles all along the way. I'm glad she's on the other side of it all and life can start to get back to normal around here...or our approximation of normal, at least, whatever that is!
