Thursday, Friday and Saturday we waited and hoped. Immediately after the surgery the doctor gave her 50/50 odds of keeping the graft. Yesterday it was 90/10. Today she is being released from the hospital. We’re not in the clear yet. It took six days for the first problem to show up, but we are guardedly optimistic.
The doctor told her to be more cautious about physical activity. He doesn’t think the long walks caused the problem originally, but they might not be so good now. Since they have to continue checking the graft she is not quite so buttoned up as before. The apartment will be boring, although not as bad as the hospital, and she has plenty of toys–DVD’s, iPad, Kindle, iPhone and laptop.
