Lydia had her second surgery on Monday. She originally was only supposed to have two surgeries but her leg was not able to expand as well as they had hoped. This picture is the hairy nevus right before surgery there are two expander's in each side of the leg. We did eight expander appointments to get to this point. They removed as much of the hairy nevus as possible. She was a little sick for a few hours after surgery but has been awesome since. She up running around by Wednesday no problem. The picture below was yesterday after her Dr.'s appointment. The hairy nevus is dying that is why it is black this is something we hadn't expected. We will have to wait a month and let the skin die and heal before expanding the skin in order to remove the remaining portion with a 3rd and final surgery. It has been a bit more of a process then we had hoped but overall Lydia has done excellent. This looks way worse then it will when it is all healed up.
She has been so good though it all. She is a tough little cookie.
