Namine had an appointment this morning with her plastic surgeon, Dr. Denny, the man who did her jaw distraction and cleft palate repair. He has declared her palate completely healed, and she can eat whatever she wants again. Well, within reason.

Namine is still sick, unfortunately. In the rush to get her ready to leave for her appointment before I had to leave for work, I forgot to take her temp. She still feels warm, though. Her secretions are more normal again; this morning, they were still thick and boogery (that’s the technical term), but we think that may have been just because it was early.

But now, something new: Namine has a rash on her forehead. We have no idea what it could be from. It wasn’t there this morning, when I was getting her ready. Pulmonology doesn’t think it’s trach-related, so who knows. We’ll keep an eye on it, and that’s pretty much all we can do for now.
