This past week was a big week for us. DS #3 got to go trick-or-treating and then return to school on Wednesday.
He was very excited. He has so loved the attention.
We have had no problems to speak of.... very little pain meds.
This past Tuesday, we went to the doctor to have the tubes removed... here are a few pictures.
These two were taken Monday night.
Our doctor removing some of the tape and tubes.
Our son pulling the tape and medicine tube off his belly.
Giving a final glance.
The scar one week after the surgery. There is still tape, but we are letting it gradually wash/rub off. He is still a little sore, but nothing that really needs medication.
His ear, one week later. It was actually looking a bit better, but today in school, he was bent under his table getting something. He bumped his ear on the way up.... I think that explains the bruising on the top. Scared the teacher, I think, as she came out to tell us what happened.
He looks symmetrical.
So, stage 1 is done. We don't have to do anything until the end of January to the beginning of February for stage 2. I will post on that, when it happens.
We still have not heard from insurance on what they will cover. So far, we have *only* paid $500.
I hope this blog is a blessing to someone. To anyone who is going through this, I would love to communicate with you.
Thank you for the prayers and support from the readers.
