Dillon had his surgery on Tuesday and we went home Friday evening. We ended up back in there Friday night for another day because he was vomiting and not holding down foods (he ended up being just fine, his tummy just didn't like the meds). We were initially told 4 to 5 days on average.
This gets me to wondering, why do they send these kids home so quickly? Don't get me wrong, I know they do fine going home quickly, but I'm curious. I just remember Dillon's CFS mentioning that back when he first started doing these surgeries, the child usually stayed in the hospital 3 weeks to a month. Do you think they go home that quick because insurance limits the days they will pay for in the hospital, or because they heal better at home? Both maybe?
