First Day at Shriner's
On Wednesday, Susan met with the team at Shriner's for the first time. She had her physical exam and pre-op consultation. Many plans were made and the first surgery has been confirmed for May 27th. This will focus on the urgent matter of her legs. Susan was told that she would need further surgery to address the different locations on her body, most importantly, her abdomen and chest area.
After the meeting with nurses and the surgeon, Susan saw the make up artist to learn how to apply skin toner in an effort to lessen the appearance of scarring on her arms.
