Week 2 Post op-Primary Children's
Lauren is pretty much back to the way she was before the surgery. She started preschool this week and doesn't seem slowed down by the surgery. We are turning the distractor every day. It does give her some pain when it is turned initially, but it doesn't last long. We sent new photos to Dr. Lewin in California and she thinks the ear is healing well. We took her to the ENT doctor today to have the ear canal cleaned and have her tragus checked. This is the small triangular piece of cartilage in front of the ear canal. It seems to be the slowest healing area of the ear. The doctor checked it and felt it is looking OK. They recommended putting ointment on it daily to help it heal. We will be planning to head back to California in October for her final surgery of the year.
