Pants felt like a new person once she was cleaned up.
About an hour later, we were cleared to leave - conveniently at about the exact moment Andrew arrived, so Andrew gathered all our stuff and packed the car, and Pants put on some pants so we could go home.
The drive home was uneventful, and Pants was eager to get home. Once in the house, she took up court in the living room and asked for a toaster grilled cheese. I whipped that up for her and then she ate the whole thing! That is the most food I have seen her in a week!
I went out to fill her prescriptions and pick up the Dude - who was leaving school with one of Pants' best friends, so I brought her home for a quick visit. It was quite exciting to see Avery awake and engaged for the whole visit - leaps ahead of 2 days ago!
While I was out, Andrew managed to measure her:
Yep, 5.5 cm or 2.25 inches taller!
She requested food that doesn't need utensils for dinner, so we are going to try pulled pork sandwiches.
Next visit to the surgeon is on Friday, so we'll update later.
