We came home late last night. She feels pretty good from surgery. Unfortunately her butt has to get used to being used again and it burns. Probably because there is still very little food going in. She has wipes and cream. And she is going alot again (like UC without the cramps). It's sad to see her hurting again especially after such an easy couple of days of recovery.
She doesn't have much of an appetite so we are trying to get her to eat small amounts more often. Hopefully within a few days she will get a handle on this burning. It was sort of expected but hard to take now that it is here.
But it is wonderful to be home!
