Night of surgery Brayden slept great, he went to bed around 11 pm and slept until 8:30 am. The nurses came in every few hours to check on him and good thing they did. At 4 am, the bed was full of blood. Either it was from his draining tube or the incision. Luckily they are here to help and they got new bedding for us and cleaned Brayden up and then we were back to sleep again.
The day after surgery, we went to Dr. Bauer's office and they did the 1st dressing change. Brayden was not happy about this and cried the whole time. That area is still so sore from surgery and I can see why he was in so much pain. I was happy with the results, especially since we only did 5 fills and we were planning on doing 11 fills.
Dr. Bauer thinks Brayden will need to more round of expanders, we will be booking his next round soon. Should be in Feb or March sometime. I am sure that will be here before we know it.
When we were leaving, Mim asked if we would talk to another nevus family and that they have a 5 year old daughter with bathing trunk nevus. She just had a few spots removed off her face and they decided to leave the rest. They were happy to meet another nevus family and also that Brayden's nevus was similar to this girls. I am always happy to share Brayden's journey and to educate other people about him.
I told Brayden that he needs to wear his cape since he is a super hero and he said no momma, I told him he is very strong and how proud I am of him
