Journey's hand surgery, before and after pictures!

Her fingers are finally not too gruesome to share-check out the before pictures and then the afters-what a difference! She can wiggle the fingers independently and just in the past week has been able to use them just as easily as with her left hand for things like coloring and picking up small objects, they were a little tender before that. She is so proud of how they look and still announces "I have 5 fingers now!" at least once a day :)



The doctor used skin from her inner thigh to make the fingers, I don't know if it will be darker than the rest of her hand forever or not-something I'll ask at our next post-op appointment!
