Botox Clinic


Today Violet had Botox Clinic.

This was the first time in a long time for her arm/elbow/hand as we have been concentrating on her leg/foot for so long, so she could receive maximum Botox into those areas.

She fasted so well and finally had her injections around 2.30pm. She did not require any pre-med! She wanted to take off her dressings herself and the main cry was because she had to lay on the bed. She was a champ!!

Think she has had to use that nitrous mask so much during her post op debriding of her pressure sore that she is dare I say it "getting used to it"? Having Botox every 6 months since the age of 2 didn't do it, but the constant months of this years post op care!

Well, regardless I was stoked and so happy that it was less traumatic for her and in turn me!

Botox clinic follow-up 30th November.

WOW - I am very impressed she did it with just the nitrous!

Audrey is looking over my shoulder and is very excited to see that Violet has the same penguin as her!!!

Yes she was brilliant!

Funnily enough, she still doesn't like TV so doesn't like watching penguins either but loves the toy versions of them!
