Kaitlyn's Surgery update

Kaitlyn's surgery was August 9, she was supposed to have a follow up within a month, but the only time I seemed to remember to call to schedule the appointment was when I would wake up at 3:00 in the morning and say "Crap, I need to make her an appointment!" and obviously couldn't do anything about it, well except to forget again until 3 AM two mornings later.

Thursday I finally remembered to make the appointment during the day, and finally called.  Luckily they were able to see her yesterday after school.

Her appointment was short, sweet and to the point.  We haven't had to use her inhaler, singular or nasal spray at all since the surgery which is great!  She also hasn't been on the headache medicine at all and has only had 1 headache in the last month which is really impressive for a little girl who was having 2-3 a week.

She is completely healed from her surgery, which is great.  To be sure that the surgery was effective in allowing her sinuses to drain and therefore relieve the pressure, we have to go a year.  If she can go a year without a sinus infection and keeping the sinuses from getting inflamed, we're in the clear!  She has her next appointment in 4 months, so we should be able to have an idea by then how she does with her sinuses!
