Its been 2+ years since Audrey has been able to smell anything. In fact, two weeks ago, she didn't even know how to smell. Today she threw away her breakfast (without eating it of course) and then told me, "Ew! The trash stinks!". What/!!? Ok so yes I need to take out the trash, but SHE SMELLED IT!??
Finally! It worked, it worked! Took two weeks to really take effect, but the surgery worked!

I immediately ran to the kitchen and started pulling things out of the cupboard and fridge and asking her to smell it. Vanilla Extract- she said it smells spicy. Cumin - she just made a gross face. Jam - said it smelled like strawberries (I made her close her eyes to see if she could smell it without seeing it hahaha). Lavender Essential Oil - she didn't like it, probably because it is so strong. Haha. this could be fun. I could make a whole smelling activity out of this.

We still have 4 more weeks to go for "full recovery" and results but so far I like what I see. The scabs in her throat have fallen off and it looks like she has two gaping holes. Its gross...but she feels better I think.
Josh didn't see her for 3 days and said that when she got out of bed on his day off, he was shocked at how different she sounds. I don't hear a difference, but I've been with her every day. But seriously I don't hear a difference so Josh may have just been saying that.
Her nose has stopped running and is completely dried up. This is the first time she hasn't had a runny nose since December. I am so excited and cannot wait to see what the next few weeks brings for her! And how awesome is it that I actually updated like I said I would :)
