Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since I've posted an update, but with her (hopefully) FINAL surgery coming up, I needed to update everyone!
Scarlette had expanders placed in November to help grow her skin. When the amputation was done, they removed all the skin on the left side of her body. It was healed up with skin grafts from her legs and silicon. It doesn't grow with her body, so it needs to be removed. We placed the expanders under her skin so that she would grow new skin, and then have the silicon and grafts removed. On March 8th, we will be doing that final surgery! As long as everything goes as planned, this should be the last surgery she should have to endure!
We will be staying in the hospital 2-5 days next week. Thank you for all your continued prayers and financial support! Please visit Facebook.com/smilesforscarlette for more frequent updates and pictures! (you don't need to have a Facebook in order to view the page)
