We took our precious little Rylee to CMH on Friday for her surgeries. She had her trach area revised and then had her G-tube site closed up. The surgeon had to do quite a bit of work to get the area to close up and it actually looks worse than when she went in. He said it would have been too big of a scar for him to cut out all the scar tissue so he decided to just get the area closed up. She could go back in for more work in a few years but I am pretty sure we will just call it good. I guess the ENT surgeon teased the GI surgeon a lot about her scar being prettier than his. The whole surgery took about an hour and then we were in the recovery room within 30 minutes. They had to put her in isolation so she was in a room all by herself and then she couldn't go into the second recovery room due to her MRSA. So we were in and out pretty quick. They sent us home with some oxycodone as her belly was really sore for the first few days. She had a hard time getting up and if we would pick her up she would cry. I had a trip planned to attend the Manhattan vs Missouri football game so I went ahead and went. I had some major mommy guilt the whole time. Jordan went to Burlington and spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa and had a great time. We are so glad that this surgery is behind us and we can move forward.
