Now I can post the pics. The 1st one is right after getting into a room, there was little swelling the 1st day.
Asleep in the midst of coloring.
They said the swelling would be bad in the morning---boy!--they weren't lying. I was actually shocked when I woke up and saw her.
This was day 2 at about 5:30am.
Poor thing looks like Curious George.
So happy to be home. As you can see, she feels pretty good.
A PT came the room and asked us if we had steps in our house--I had not even thought of that.....she said Avery would probably lead with the good side and do one step at the time.
She was wrong! The other kids were playing in the back yard when we got home, she bounded up the brick steps to the backyard with no trouble at all. They all had to check her out, of course. A couple covered their mouths. DH had given them a speech not to comment on her appearance.
Look at her doing the Chinese squat--We are very thankful her hip is not in pain.
Emmi's idea, to get the "treasure box" and let Avery pick a treasure.
Here's the actial incision, about 2" long. She is on Lortab, amoxicillin, mucinex, and saline nose spray.
She is getting her juice thru a syringe with a tube attached. But the ice-cream and pudding, I have fed her with a spoon. Two weeks on the mushy diet=(
