We had our pre-op History and Physical today at Dr. Pats... and it was all good news!
- Evie weighed in at 11lb 15oz, more than ever!
- She doesn't even have a hint of the sniffles
- She is in primo condition for surgery.
After our physical, we stopped by a friend's house whose brother in law is a pediatric neurosurgeon in Canada, and he said for a kid that needs craniosynostosis surgery Evie's face looks really good, and since she's so little they won't have to cut her skull into too many pieces. Sounds good to me! It was nice to talk to a person in the medical profession on a social level to ask questions in a not-so intimidating setting.
All in all a good day! I tried to explain Evie's surgery to Lyla, so that she would know they are going to shave her head, and she will have a big boo-boo when we come home. A few minutes later I told her I head a headache, and she told me "I'm a doctor" and began dramatically touching my head... "You need surgery. We're going to cut your head off, put a ponytail on it, and put a headband on like Nana." I'm glad she's not too worried about Evie's surgery (:
Love you friends!
