Mom just called and the doc said her incision is looking much better! Her antibiotics weren't renewed, but they continue saturating the incision with saline gauze until it fully closes, and then returns to the surgeon in a month. Hopefully, her external bile drain will also be removed.
She sounded so much better. Her anxiety heightens (as does everyone's) before these appointments, so I'm wishing her a restful and enjoyable day with Patsy by her side.
