The girls start school this Tuesday. Lidie begins transitional kindergarten and Amaya starts second grade. This will be Amaya's first school year without any scheduled surgeries! We're looking forward to a new year, new start and a break from surgeries.
Thanks again for all your love, kindness and support.
Isn't this the coolest monster you've ever seen? It was in a care package from Rory and her family. We received some sweet cards, pictures and treats that helped the girls feel loved and extra special. Thank you all for all the love, thoughts, calls, prayers, and messages. We're grateful for all your love and support.
Amaya used one of the flowers she received to play with. She pretended she was the flower and she was sleeping in recovery.
Here's what Amaya's hip looked like before her shower on Tuesday. From previous surgeries we've learned to not force the bandage removal. We had her shower like normal, but didn't touch the bandage at all.
Amaya's hip started to get itchy then the gauze started to peel off on its own. By Thursday the gauze came off on its own. Here's what her incision looked like. Amaya was surprised and happy to see how small the incision was.
Here's what her hip looks like now. There's still a small bruise on the outside, but her incision looks great! And the bruise doesn't hurt her at all.
Here are our two lovelies.
