KT's braces are coming off tonight. Dr Christensen in St George believes they need to come off for 2 reasons: to promote healing and to allow more definitive CT scan to pin-point the abscess.
Her pain has increased every day this week, so I finally got a hold of Dr Gordon in Ohio. He thought the Primary Children's team had already gone in and cleaned out the abscess surgically. He said that's the only way this will resolve, so we'll get that scheduled at Primary's as early this week at possible.
