This evening while sponge-bathing Mason we took a few pictures of his various incisions as mile markers in the healing process. Today Mason is exactly 3 weeks old. That means he is exactly 3 weeks out from his back closure surgery. Here is his back today: And for a refresher, you can see it at birth (open and minutes old) in this post and at 3.5 days out from surgery in this post.
Today he is exactly 2 weeks out from his VP Shunt surgery, which consisted of two incisions (head and abdomen). Here is Mason’s head incision today: And his abdomen incision, which has healed so quickly and well it’s hard to see, it’s the faint white horizontal scar. Hooray for healing! We’re praying everything continues to heal well in the coming days and weeks.
