Ava’s incision draining procedure went well. She was pretty calm but did cry a few times. The found that it is just in the skin layer and is not coming from underneath. They might know something in a few days but since we started her on antibiotics we may never know. The results are altered if antibiotics are given unless it is a bug that that particular antibiotic did not cover. She such a strong little girl. I surprised myself and was strong for her as well. I normally are not bothered by these things but today was a little different. Good thing there are calming meds for Mommies too!
Here is Ava right before the procedure. She is watching Little People. I hated to disturb her especially for this.
This is Ava after it….okay about 2 hours later. She slept for nearly two hours after the procedure. Did I mention she is eating now? She has eaten 5 teaspoons of peanut butter, 10 rotini noodles, and 6 teaspoons vanilla ice cream. AND it has all stayed down. She had a large bowel movement for me last night and again this morning. We are very excited about this.
You guys are absolutely wonderful. Your messages warm my heart and I don’t feel alone when I come here and see all the prayers and support we have. From the bottom of my tired heart I say with a large voice, “Thanks!”
