A Rough Time

Karsie's surgery went well, but her recovery is not so fun.  I guess if you told any normal person that the doctors were going to make two incisions in her sides, separate her rectis and obliques, put in a plastic balloon on each side, fill it up a bit, then sew her up, that normal person would say "ouch".  However, for some reason, we were led to believe it was not that invasive of a surgery (most likely because it didn't mess with vital organs).  While that may be true, recovery from it is far from easy.

Karsie had a very rough night and has been in quite a bit of pain.  We spent all night trying to manage it well, but she's still very much in pain.  We'll be here at least another night, and we're hoping not to have neighbors again tonight.  It's hard to recover when two three-year-olds keep waking each other up.

Hopefully she'll get to come home tomorrow.
