CHOP update

Abby saw Dr. C this morning and he said her incision was fine.  It's not healing quite the way he would like, but it's not infected and they're just going to leave it alone. She'll continue with the antibiotic for 2 weeks as a precaution.  She does heal slowly and agrees with what our pediatrician said yesterday about her maybe having ongoing wound issues. 

Therefore, her next veptr attempt will be held off until December 30th to allow her time to heal. If we schedule it earlier and she isn't completely healed, they would delay surgery anyway.  Hopefully, the incision will be totally fine by then (just in time for them to open her up again!)  

Not exactly my first choice, but at least she will be home for Christmas.  We will be living it up in the hospital for New year's! :)
