Naomi’s surgery went as smoothly as we could hope. It took only about 20 minutes for the dr to come to the waiting room to get me. He was able to remove the line through the incision point already there and did not need to make any additional incisions. Her stitches are self dissolving and under the skin. So all that is visible on the surface are two very small white bandages that will fall off on their own.
She can shower tomorrow. Baths and swimming is allowed on Monday. Seeing as how she is outside this evening wanting to go play baseball at the park or ride her bike, I do not see a point at which I will need to be filling her prescription for the pain meds.
We return to City of Hope on Monday. Then, we will be going down to monthly trips there.
