Sofi is recovering well!

The procedure took 26 minutes. I’m not even sure she was asleep for that whole time. That’s just how long we weren’t with her. It was that quick, an now she has a new belly button. Yesterday, she was very uncomfortable. She didn’t want to walk or straighten out. We have kept up with her…

Surgery for Sofi

This is going to be short. She has a very small herniated belly button. Not really anything that is a big deal. We were hoping it would close on it’s own. It didn’t. Go figure. After a 2 year wait, we are having it fixed. Tomorrow at 8am, we will be at the surgery center….

Another surgery down

After 36 hrs on the hospital, we are home.  She has an incision down her entire foot and had 4 bones and a toe removed.  She also had some reconstruction done.  She’s in a lot of pain.  Her breathing isn’t great.   I have to reposition her every 2 hours to prevent skin breakdown, which…
