It’s been a busy week and a half here with appointments, but all positive so far 🙏🏼. The surgeon is happy how her incision is healing. We have began doing dilations to her bum (using a device to maintain/increase her bum hole size to normal, as it naturally closed a bit after surgery and closes without stool passing through regularly). Not a comfortable procedure we do everyday, but she is so tough and tolerates it well. We keep her incision as dry as possible, changing every time she pees with saline irrigation’s and using sterile gauze. Her ostomy is doing good, we are getting used to the new appliance and managing her prolapse.
She is crawling everywhere and is on the move! How do u tell a 1 year old to “rest” after a surgery. Very hard! But at least her incision is not bothering her. Landon and I last week finished baby proofing the house.
She misses her baths, cannot wait until we get the “go” in a few weeks from the surgeon when we can again.
We will be back and forth to the Stollery the next while to her Pediatrician and surgeon to keep a close eye on her. Thanks everyone for the kind words and asking how Ava has been❤️💕.
