November 2010 – There’s No Place Like Home

 

A smile for the elevator going home

 

Lil’ Sophie is home and has been sleeping for several hours in her own bed. She’s eating better than before surgery. She has been off Tylenol for almost 48 hours and no fevers have returned. So she’s doing really well.

Her incision looks pretty good. And we’ve been taught how to care for it. I know some of you maybe wondering – it runs the whole length of her chest. They use dissoluble stitches and closed her from the inside so she will be spared stitch removal later.

She has a slew of follow-up appointments and some new meds from the Endocrinologist. We’re working on her calcium intake through these new meds since her abnormal liver has robbed her of proper nutrients. Her GI specialist wants to wait a couple of months to see how her body responds to her new valve and blood flow before we start diving into liver transplant options. We are really praying against the transplant. And hoping something else miraculous will happen with her liver.

In the meantime, sleep is in order.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and encouragement.
