The 10th surgery was supposed to be identical to the 9th: reconstruction corrective grafting stuff that's a little complicated and personal for here. It didn't quite turn out that way.
Apparently the surgeon--who wasn't satisfied with the previous surgery's results--decided to go to more extreme measures. After the surgery was through, we figured out how much of a difference that made. Anne-Marie has been much more sore these past two weeks. I once again took her to SCCA House the first night.
Moving an extra two hours away from the hospital was no favor to Anne-Marie when it comes to driving home after these things. We found a narrow window between rush hours the day after surgery and raced home.
The first week we had to call in a few favors for the kids to be taken care of for a few extra days. It all worked out and by Friday of surgery week, Anne-Marie was up and doing things again. Last week, which was a full week removed from the date of the procedure was pretty close to a normal week.
Post-op is Thursday and surgery 11 will be in the fall.
