Stitches are off! It couldn't have went smoother. With Davy's Adrenal issues, being put under anesthesia is a little more complicating. They have to give a "stress dose"of steriods at least a half an hour before, that is why they try to get that IV in before. They have to give her another one 6 hours later. Without it she would not survive. Then her nostrils were pretty impacted with , let's just say"stuff", that needed to be flushed out and the anesthesia Doc thought that it would be best to intubate her so she wouldn't choke on it. So the suture removal becomes an all day event. But we lucked out. Dr. J told our Endocrine and "Ani"Doc that he could to it fairly fast and it would not require intubation or her stress dose. Well she still requires a stress dose no matter what, but not as large of a dose, so not through an IV. Am I making any sense to you? Basically what could have been an ordeal of 6 hours was cut into 3.....booya. Dr.J saw how fussy Davy was being and said it indeed was not normal. He's pretty sure she has some sort of infection, so she is on another round of antibiotics and he gave us more codeine. She also will be wearing tape for the next week to help her not disturb her lip. SO hopefully things we be on the up and up. In the meantime we will be walking and retrying to get these stupid no-no arm bands to work. I think I need to MacGyver them on her some how. Ducktape......sock....safety pin?
