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.
