Anyway, the whole appointment was a little traumatic for Harlie. When it came to looking at her incision, it took five people (two of which were men).
They removed the steri-strips and cleaned it all up and then put new steri-strips in place. Then they put a dressing over it. It's a good thing, too, because there was a place at the top of her incision that wasn't closing up. And it started bleeding when they started messing with it. Katie told me that in the past five years she has never had a patient come back seven days post-op with bleeding. Harlie just has to be different all the time. It's kind of annoying.
And for a girl with low tone, she sure can be strong when she wants to be!!!

Wednesday was crazy. Because I had to get everything ready and pack for our first mini-vacation in four years!!!! Woohoo!!!!
We went to Charleston, SC to stay with some friends and it was FABULOUS!!!! And I can't wait to tell you all about it! And show you pictures!!!
But, I have tons to do - unpack and stuff. Then I have to pick Harlie up early for speech therapy. She hasn't had any of her private therapies in three weeks! I'm glad to be getting back to our normal since before the surgery. I had no idea this pacemaker surgery would be so time consuming. I'm so excited to see how Harlie does in school today. I really wish I had walked with her and Terri into school so I could see her classmates greet her. It's been three weeks since she was in school! I really hope she knows how much she's loved!
Okay, more fun stuff to come soon!
