Back at home

DSC_0016

Lilah's surgery today went very well.

We were lucky that the case before hers was bumped, so we arrived at the hospital and she went right in. We were able to get home by noon.

Lilah amazes me. We were given a prescription for pain killers and she says she doesn't need any pain medication because she is not in pain. At least not enough pain. This all stems from her anxiety and high tolerance of pain, so I may have to force her to take some yet!

The surgeon said this fat injection went much better and they got the fat into the areas that they wanted it to go. There may or may not be a third injection, depending on how this looks when the swelling goes down. The surgeon did laugh a little, when he said finding some fat on her skinny, little tummy was not easy!

What a toughie! And I had to laugh about the skinny little tummy comment - we would be in the same boat with Claire. Our two seem to be built very much the same.

What a trooper! It's been interesting to watch the various treatments Lilah has undergone. Such amazing advances in medicine for our little sweeties.
