Wowzers! Y'all wouldn't believe how wonderful Kevin looks!! Here is a photo I took this morning when they removed his head bandage, but first there is one from back in June when we were here for his neck/chin surgery. This will really show you the difference in his head (also, as an FYI, Kevin is still swollen from all of the fluid from his surgery and isn't really that chubby in the face, lol)
And notice that they really didn't cut even one hair on the kid's head? Yep! And believe it or not, he is allowed to shower and wash his hair tomorrow (yikes!). Oh and they used some sort of 'super glue' on his wound vac site so there are no stitches there! Modern medicine, huh?
But what a difference, right? I told both of those docs (neurosurgery and plastics) that they are both simply amazing and I meant it. I am just so impressed and can't believe the changes in Kevin. (and I am very mad at myself for choosing to stay in Tampa for the cranioplasty! I have only myself to blame for Kevin having to go through this 'fix it' surgery on his head!!)
And I realize that you can't see either the trach site or the wound vac site, but they are both phenomenal looking as well! I would have NEVER thought that these things could be fixed so well! I am honestly still shaking my head in wonder.
So anyway, we are out of the hospital and back over at the guest house. I am hoping that Kev gets a good night sleep as you get none while in the hospital and luckily he is already working on it. I can hear him snoring from the next room. So this is my chance to get a little tv in. I hope there is something good on!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
