Recovery Going Great

Harvest Witch made her weekly appearance yesterday.:) Although, I was a little bummed while working on her because I had hoped to be stitching with the Kreiniks.


Today I took Mac back to Dr. L to have his bandages removed. This was the first time any of us got to see the incision and stitches. The incision behind his ear starts at the top of his ear and runs all the way down to the bottom of his ear. It actually looks better than I thought it would. When they removed the bad part of his eardrum they replaced it with that little piece of cartilage that is next to the opening of the ear. They had to put in 4 stitches where the cartilage used to be. He gets those taken out this Friday.

Dr. L was pleased with how he is recovering. He might even be able to go back to school on Thursday if he isn't having any pain. Mac sure has a high pain tolerance because he hasn't used hardly any of his pain medicine. I noticed he needs it about mid morning and a little bit before bed. I would say he is about 60% back to being his normal self. He isn't quite up to fighting with his sisters yet but he is getting there!

So glad to hear the surgery went okay. Sorry to hear that Mac will have to repeat it though. That infection was really a tough one. I hope you are doing well too. Your HW is looking great!

So glad to hear he is recovering well. I saw in your earlier note where they don't think they were able to get enough of the infection to prevent a second operation, but hopefully this makes him feel a lot better and the follow up second surgery goes quicker and smoother.

Harvest Witch is looking so pretty, I love the colors in her. The Kreiniks will really make her sparkle when you get to them. Hope they behave for you (I find they can be very frustrating on occation).
