A quick update on Lucy Kim....
After posting the last update, Lucy turned a corner and Lucy has improved each day since. Thankfully there were no more high temps after hitting that 103 fever on Wednesday afternoon. She was kept comfortable with ibuprofen and acetaminophen through Friday. Since then she's been pretty much pain med. free!
On Saturday, Nov. 15th, we left Room 3 in the Orioles wing of Haven House after being there for twelve days and as planned we left St. Louis, to travel back home to Pennsylvania.
We were all so glad to be reunited with our family!
Two days later, things are pretty much back to our groove. Not for long though -- next week we'll need to fly back to St. Louis for a quick "wound care check". Dr. Dobbs will remove Lucy's split cast and check the surgery site making sure that the pin that was put in didn't "migrate." She'll be re-casted with a regular full length cast for another four weeks ( keeping the foot in a prone position while the pin is in). Then close to Christmas, she'll undergo a second surgery to have the pin removed and if there are no complications, she will be done with casting!! At that time Lucy will trade in casts for AFO's (ankle foot brace).
