Operation Chloe: Part 6

 

Coming Home

After five days, I finally got to go home! It is a 7 hour drive to Boston and even though I do not like long car rides, I could not wait to get home. The car was packed to the brim and I slept most of the way home.

Recovery means good nutrition and drinking lots of fluids so that bones can heal and blood counts can get back to normal. For now, I have to drink one of these every day. YUCK! It’s my least favorite part of the day but it helps my bones to heal.

I think Boost is gross. I should not have given it it’s own picture.

More Visits to Boston and Getting Two Braces

I see a doctor every 2–4 weeks while I am healing. I came home in the foam wedge and knee splints (1). Those made me feel too warm. I just got my MapleLeaf brace (2). We have two more trips to Boston for x-rays and doctor visits. They will check on the metal that holds my bones together (see the x-ray). They are also checking to see if the surgery repaired my hip socket.
