Thankfully, the huge lymph node has gotten a little smaller, and she no longer has a fever.
Avery, 1 week post-op, is doing well. There was no liquid diet this go around, but a we were very cautious and fed her only soft foods for several days. She is just now "not afraid" to eat. She kind of shuts down after surgeries. PTSS shows itself. When I ask her a question, I have to ask her several times and tell her to say yes or no. She is almost back to her normal self today.
Today, DH went to work, we did school and everything in our world was NORMAL!
