The only odd thing I didn't get a picture of, it is a bit difficult to get across in a picture. If you look at Mason from the side and run your fingers down his spine from neck toward his bottom you feel the spine begin to curve out just above the incision. That may be normal or may be a bit of swelling. However, when you get below the incision his back seems to dip in again. That may be evidence of the scar tissue that was removed or may simply be noticeable because the upper part is swollen. Only time will tell!
For a week out from surgery Mason is doing really well and back to most of his normal activities. He's happy and bossy and enjoying being home surrounded by family. He's almost settled back into normal sleep routines too. The hospital always throws him for a loop with checks at all hours, so he had been staying up until midnight every night and taking a late nap each afternoon. He is falling asleep before 10pm now and nap begins closer to 1:30pm.
