Not going home

Not only are we not going home, Emily's having another surgery. :( She's managed to pull out one of the stitches holding her tongue to the roof of her mouth. As a precaution and to try to help her mouth heal the surgeon is going to reattach that area of her tongue and possibly stitch the tip of her tongue to the roof of her mouth to limit movement. He was a little unhappy about how much range of motion she has with her tongue right now and how much she is able to open her mouth.

I am not surprised in the least; I'm glad we caught it before we left. This should be a really quick in-and-out procedure (she'll be sedated and intubated but hopefully just for the procedure) but we'll stay the night tonight since the surgery won't be until late afternoon.

We have a cute little roommate now who had throat surgery this morning so she and Emily have been swapping toys. :)
