Dr. Chiayasate just came out and filled Tim & Sharon in on the results of the surgery. It seems to have been successful, and the family will need to come to Royal Oak weekly over the next four weeks, until her next surgery begins.
The doctor emphasized again that it is not uncommon for depression to set in during this phase of the reconstruction, as the appearance is alarming. Additionally, as Charlotte has what is essentially an open wound, she will be more restricted in her activities than she was after her last surgery. She will not be able to run around outside or to ride her bike at all, which she had started to do over the past few weeks.
Charlotte will be staying at Beaumont 3-5 days. The family is hoping to bring her home as soon as Sunday, but it all depends on how she feels when she wakes up and how quickly she heals.
