Esther's home and doing well!

They were able to take care of her pyogenic granuloma in the office at Children's (Bellevue) today!   She didn't appreciate the procedure, but it went well, and didn't even take very long!

They will be testing what they removed to see if it is malignant, but they assured me that these are almost always benign.  The post-op instruction seem to be easy enough, but I had to sign a release that stated that I understood that there would be scaring and there is a possibility that they will recur - but that isn't really common.  We also have to watch for infection.

Thanks so much for your prayers!  I really didn't think that they would take care of it there, but I was so relieved that they did as it bled so many times in the last few days that I lost wasn't fun being on full alert all the time as you just never knew when she'd start bleeding profusely!


  1. I am glad the procedure went well. I will continue to keep her and you in my prayers.

  2. That's great that they were able to take care of it right then! I will pray for quick healing and no scarring or infection.
