Checked out for home care

Tian You was checked out of hospital on Monday. He and Lucy will be staying at the foster family's home, but will be visiting the hospital frequently to receive care for his wounds, catheter drainage and colostomy care. The surgeons want to monitor him closely on his healing progress, before letting us know when he will be fit to travel back to Beijing.

Smiling and playing

Tian You is all smiles, and just a little too active ! He's obviously feeling much better, but is still at risk of opening up his wounds with his energy. Lucy will be trained how to manage his catheter and colostomy bag, and his stitches and wound over the next few days, and if all goes well, they will be checked out of hospital on Monday. Follow-up checks will be twice a week for the first week, and his progress will decide how long he needs to stay in Singapore.
