The other doctor looked at her throat through her nose. As expected there is still quite a bit of swelling. As the weeks/months go by, each day should be a tad easier to swallow.
Monday night Dad and Angela took Madi out for sushi, one of her favorite meals. We were impressed how much she ate given what her throat must have felt like.
On Tuesday Madi had a throat study with Tessa (mentioned in a prior thread): Tessa was "extremely impressed" and remarked that Madi's progress was "amazing". Again, the swelling will continue go down over time but she's progressing in the right direction!
Another milestone today... the staples in her neck were removed. Again, it's an impressive incision in the front of her neck with about 50 staples. I was trying to convince Madison to keep the staples and make a bracelet, how cool would that be?! It turns out that they had to cut each in half to wiggle them out. Dang!
I think there was a movie star sitting behind Chris on the plane last night. The paparazzi kept snapping pictures... something was definitely up.
More to come in the next couple of days, stay tuned.
