4 Week Post-Op
On Friday we took Bryn to the hand dr. for another check. He took the wrappings off and left them off. She now has a hand to use. The stitches are all gone. Her hand is still pretty swollen, which he said it could take a few months for the swelling to go down. He wants us to encourage her to use her hand by placing toys in her space and try and get her to use her right hand and not her left. Her hand looks really good. I will post some pictures maybe in the next week or so. It is so crazy how much it looks like a thumb. She is moving the top part of her thumb, but we are trying to get her to move the whole thing. She is supposed to start physical therapy this coming week and go once a week for about a month and then just have an at-home program. She will the Dr. next Friday and then see him once a month after that!
