Christine's First Surgery

Visit to Dr. Garvey

Christine has been home three full days now and we have settled into a good routine. After two good nights sleep, she struggled last night and is quite tired. She is suffering from a very sore throat caused by the tracheotomy tube. We will be visiting the head and neck surgery to have this addressed. I think once this has been removed, Christine will be in better spirits.

Today we visited Dr Garvey and his team to assess her leg and mouth surgeries. Her leg looks fantastic, and is well on the mend. The outside scar on her face is healing very nicely, especially as all of the staples have been removed. The inside of mouth, although still hurting, is doing well too. This will take a lot longer time to heal. Dr Garvey removed some extraneous tissue from her mouth (actually her leg muscle&hellipWinking, and cleaned around the wound. We have another appointment on Thursday to remove the last drainage tube. Then we will be down to one remaining tube!

Thanks again for all of the incredible support, the cards, and flowers. They are most appreciated!
