Monday visit to have the incision checked, weight check, etc.

The issue is that part of the incision is not healing completely (granular tissue visible at the surface, not being covered by skin), because when the closing was done, things weren't lined up quite right. The current strategy is a wait-and-see involving gauze and a couple rounds of hydrogen peroxide per day, with a follow up check in a weekish.

A. is up to 9 pounds 7 ounces (give or take due to a paper diaper); she's gaining about an ounce a day. No feeding problems, apparently. Altho when I looked in the mirror this evening I was startled to realize my face looks noticeably different. Tandem nursing _really_ pulls it out of a mother.
