The Weeks Go On

It has been almost 3 weeks since Reesie-Roo's surgery and she is doing wonderfully.  Thank you to everyone who has been praying.  I'm so sorry it has taken this long for an update and thank you for being so patient, so for your kindness, here is your update.

The day after her surgery Kyle and I were honestly expecting to have a chill day at home watching movies and waiting on her while she was sluggish.  AS IF!  This girl was running around the house!  We decided to take advantage of a day with Daddy home and the older kids still at school, so we took the littles to the Como Zoo.

She had a blast and honestly, so did we.  We don't get to spend time with just the littles very often so it was a nice change of pace.  We even went to Mac's Fish & Chips for lunch.  That afternoon Kyle took Reese to her follow up appointment.  Dr. Soumekh checked her incision by her ear and gave us care instructions.  Twice a day, we were to use a Q-tip with hydrogen peroxide to clean out the lymph node, then use ointment on a Q-tip in the incision and cover with a bandage.  The first few days it was tough to get her to sit still for the "cleanings."  We started bribing her with ice cream.  Quality parenting right here folks.  After the first cleaning she didn't want ice cream anymore.

Earlier in June we had another appointment with Dr. Soumekh and everything was still looking good.  The bandage on her chin has finally fallen off so we are just seeing that for the first time.  It looks good but we'll probably be some essential oils on that to help with the healing.  The incision by her ear is so small right now but is healing as well.  She's still on antibiotics and we're not sure how long she'll have to be on them.  She has another appointment June 24th to see how she's doing.

The girl hasn't missed a beat.
