Palate Surgery Recovery - Day 10

Palate Surgery Recovery - Day 10

Emily tried Chicken and Stars soup for the first time today. She learned quickly how to drink the soup and eject the stars (those are a few stars on her chin). Oh well. I thought for a few minutes that I'd get actual food into her.

She's doing great 10 day post-op (my how time flies!) and there's almost nothing new to report in terms of her recovery except that she's taken her first unassisted steps over the last two days. This is because I let go for a second when holding her hands and she took a step! Then she fell into my arms and giggled. Now it's a game we play, but I think it's a step in the right direction (pun intended).

She loves bending her arms without the restraints on. Here she is flirting with me (notice I removed the stars from her chin). Except for sleep issues she is pretty much back to herself. We even took her to the park today.
