All Done

Dr. Kane just came back and said she did great. He said it was quite large once he got in there. 2cm by 3cm. He said that the skin seemed to close rather easily, not too tight or much pulling so that is a good sign as far as the widening scar goes, but he said all bets are off and it could still pull. He used several layers of dissolving stitches and said to watch her activity level. No roughhousing since a bump to the head could split that open. Watch for bleeding and infection, both rare. He said we'd be able to go back in about 20 minutes to see her. We'll go back to see him in 2 weeks for post-op follow up and he'll show us pictures of it at that time and share biopsy results. He said if we really are dying to hear, we can call his office in about a week and they can look up the results, but not to lose any sleep over it. He said to give her ibuprofen and tylenol and they'll give us a script for some tylenol with codeine, but if she were his daughter, he wouldn't even fill it.

Thanks again for the prayers!
