Home Safe

After a very, very long day and night, the entire Marx Family is home! Aerin is doing unbelievably well - you'd never know she had major surgery 2 days ago. We trying, with limited success, to keep her as still as we can.

Here are some pictures from the surgery:

This is Aerin in the PACU (Recovery). We were the only parents allowed in.

Here are Aerin and Momma in Aerin's station in the step-down unit.

Here are Aerin and Momma asleep in the crib. It was even less comfortable than it looks for Momma.

Here is the immobilizer that Nurse Joanna and I had to rig to keep Aerin from moving her arm. She still managed to pull 2 stitches, which Dr. O fixed before she was discharged.

I'll try to write a more detailed post in the next few days. Aerin is getting her staples out on Tuesday and her stitches out in 2 weeks.

Aerin looks so peaceful and un-bothered in that crib, it's a testament to the wonders a mom can work just by contorting herself into a nonexistent space. Love ALL the photos. Looking forward to Aerin hoisting barbells with that arm. --Sesh

Absolutely wonderful, and an answer to prayer, that it went so well. Thanks so much for keeping us updated.

So happy that everything went so well. Hope the recovery is fast and smooth sailing for all of you. Children bounce back so fast.
