I think we have discovered a hair solution for the time being... wide, stretchy headbands. I have a lot of knit fabric in my stash, so each morning for the past three days, I look at what H. is wearing and make a new one to match. At some point, we should have enough choices that I won't need to do that anymore.
Here are some photos from today, five days after surgery. The stitches and swelling are still very visible, but you can get a sense of what the surgeon was able to do.
She doesn't like the stitches, she doesn't like the shaved hair, and she is much more self-conscious about how she look now than when she had the expanders in. Understandably, she is feeling a little emotionally tender these days. It's as though this surgery has allowed some walls she had built up to come tumbling down. It's a really good thing, but hard to watch your child suffer through.
