Our foster daughter, Jessica, is now 36 years old. She lived with us for 5 years and we have continued to be her "second parents" even after she returned to her bio-mom. She married, has three beautiful children (ages 11, 13, 14.) All were C-sections... And we are an extra set of grand parents for them. She divorced and has remarried a great fellow.
Last November she discovered she had pre-cancerous cells on her cervix. The doctor and she decided she might as well have a hysterectomy. (It had to be the cut her open type because of her c-sections)
That happened on Dec. 27.....She bounced up and was doing good....went home in 24 hours.......On Dec. 29 the surgeon instructed that her staples be removed......IT HAS BEEN ALL DOWN HILL SINCE THEN.
Her incision opened up ...was "taped" closed, but it's healing together horribly and unevenly. I drove over (150 miles) last Monday and came home Thursday afternoon (yesterday) because her mom had to leave Sunday........Everyone is asking why were her staples removed so SOON???
One of her doctors shrugged it off and said that this "sometimes happens"......... Her "wound specialist" is even surprised her staples didn't stay in for 5 days!
I came home very frustrated because I couldn't do more for her but drive her to doctor appts....(her husband had to go back to work)......Make sure everyone was being fed, and hold a whip over her kids' to CLEAN THE KITCHEN AND BATHROOM!!!
Sorry........but I can't believe she has to go through all sorts of extra appointments and care AND PAIN, that would have been totally unnecessary because of that one stupid decision....She'd be up and around by now! Instead she's limited in how she can move, what she can do......etc. I AM peeved.
