3 weeks ago, Vera had plastic surgery on the scar on her noggin' to minimize its appearance. I have been meaning to blog about the entire process (as in why we decided to do it and why now), but can't seem to make myself sit down and write about it. In summary, it went well. The scar was reduced from 3 inches long by 1 inch wide to about the thickness of the yellow part of a pencil. We are very happy with the results.
A week after surgery, J and Vera ventured to LA for an appointment just to make sure that everything was healing well. They spent 6 hours in the car total and 15 minutes with the doctor. At three weeks, they again had to take a trip down to the doctor's office to have the staples that were holding the incision closed removed. This time, J wanted to spend the day exploring with Vera and enjoying time with her instead of it being all about the car ride.
They rode bikes from Santa Monica to Venice.
Climbed around on the adult gymnast equipment.
Found a cool and modern playground.
Rode more bikes.
Visited the LA Natural History Museum.
AND, managed to finish this entire lunch. I am just a little jealous, since it looks delicious. J had a fantastic time with his little girl and valued the one-on-one time that he got to spend with her.
