After surgery, Marsi got so clingy. I understand why. She only wanted Mommy and it hurt to snuggle and that made nights so hard on both of us. Her incision is healing quite nicely. One thing that I didn't realize was how pronounced it was going to be. It sticks out pretty far. I am hoping as the muscles start to heal and the stitches dissolve it will lie flatter. She is completely off of all medications now. Her last dose of Tylenol was almost 2 days ago! I am so glad they did this when they did because the school I teach at is on spring break so I will have been able to spend 2 weeks at home with her before going back to work (minus 3 hours from when she was in the hospital and last Friday). She is finally being able to wear onsies again instead of just button down both leg sleepers. I am glad because I have the cutest Easter things for her to wear!!! I just wanted to give you an update. Many prayers that your little ones get surgery soon and do just as well as Marsi in their healing!
I haven't posted in this group before, but sometimes lurk here. I'm so happy your daughter's surgery went well. My daughter had open heart surgery September 29 of last year. She was 6 months old. It is truly amazing how fast they heal! I just wanted to comment about her scar. Once the stitches dissolve and it starts to heal, it will look better and better and start to lay flatter. Once my daughter's had healed, I started rubbing Johnson's Cocoa Butter and Shea lotion on it every night. Not sure if it has helped, but you can see in my siggy her scar looks really good.
