They had to re-open Bronzy. The internal stitching is intact and there is no abscess. But there is a lot of fluid building up around the surgical site and that's causing the swelling. They think that she is having a reaction to the stitches.
This isn't life-threatening, but they want to keep her at the clinic because the fluid will require continuous drainage over the next few days. Only after the reactions have stopped and there is no more built-up of fluid will she be able to come home.
I am relieved that the problem seems to be manageable. I really hope that they are taking care of my baby girl and that she will not have to endure too much discomfort from the needles.
PS. I wanted to get this out earlier, but I had an exam this morning that required mad preparation yesterday.
