Home After a Great Day

This morning, before surgery
Our goal for this second (and final) surgery was to remove the remaining scar tissue.


Tonight, after surgery

They were able to remove all the scar tissue! Don't be scared by the uneven-ness of the wound- they assure me that as it heals, it will stretch and smooth out nicely. We are so pleased!

We let them know that we wouldn't be letting her have the Versed that caused such a major problem last time. When I told the anesthesiologist that, she said, "Oh, will we have a problem taking her back to surgery without it?"

I assured her that WC has never met a stranger and would have no problem going back to the surgery un-medicated. The plan was to give her gas once they got her back in the surgery room, followed by the IV.

The surgery took less than 20 minutes, and when they wheeled her back out to us, she was drinking an apple juice box. She saw her brother's Popsicle and of course asked for one.

The doctor and nurse practitioner came out to chat about the results and let us know that WC was "quite entertaining" before they got started with the surgery.

I can't tell you how glad I am to have this all behind us! Thanks for all your prayers over this hemangioma journey!

Pin It!

P had that damned Versed this morning for her tubes... not fun for this momma while it wore off!

So glad the surgery went well and she had a better time with the anesthesia!
