Hmmmm What Number Is this Surgery?

Tomorrow Calamity goes back to surgery again to do the procedure that was aborted on the 12th. They will make the tension releasing incisions & close the skin over the screws that the skin has not granulated over in the past 10 days.

The product Dr Layton used was a medicinal "sugar" along with an antibiotic impregnanted gauze. It helped some, but not enough. It's time to close this to reduce the risk of bacteria getting under the plate, causing more issues in the healing.

They are actually going to x-ray her also instead of waiting the full 6 weeks. I'm anxious to see how much the bone has healed as there was a pretty big gap of bone that will have to fill in.

Other than the daily splint changes, her spirit is great!
