It's looking ok. I was, perhaps, a little overly optimistic yesterday. Wound is still an open, gaping hole. Drainage is practically non-existent -- a tiny bit of watery discharge when I powder his butt. I'm crossing fingers and toes that it is healed in two weeks. I have decided if the doc cancels surgery, I will start looking for another surgeon. I wish I had complete confidence in him, but I just don't. There were a few little errors which made me have niggling doubts. Nothing glaring, just a few little things that make me wonder. I'm actually hoping your daughter will be scheduled for the same day as my son! That way, we can compare notes! Will your daughter's surgery be at a hospital or an outpatient surgical center? When did you say your daughter's college semester starts? Where is she going? Is it far from where you live? Where do you live, and where is your doctor? Close by, or a bit of a drive? Well, at least we're both on our way to getting this horrible problem resolved, once and for all! Woo-hoo!
