A painful weekend.
We were warned that day 4 and 5 can be very very sore after the T&A surgery. Sheena had frequent periods of severe pain over the weekend. Pain-stop didn't hold her for 4 hours all the time, and she woke up overnight every four hours screaming in pain, but still really sleepy with her eyes shut while we gave her pain relief.
Poor little girl.
She couldn't eat all day Saturday, but she snacked on Sunday. All the time she could tolerate milk which is very good, and she wanted it a lot as she was hungry from lack of food. She managed breakfast this morning thank-goodness. We can tell her body is weak, understandably. She is so heavy to hold as she doesn't put any muscle power into it, sensibly conserving energy where she can. Of course she wants to be held more often, and my shoulders are really tight from all the lifting.
Here is Sheena playing with one of her birthday presents. Its a bath time favourite. Great for her fine-motor skills, and learning to pour water accurately. She loves having Roy in the bath.
