As a father of five, three of them daughters, that seem a bit quick to me......

But, I can not imagine the surgeons sending your daughter home too early. I bet the surgery went very well and she has been getting better quickly.

In the long run it is better to recover at home where the risk of catching a nasty infection is much less and your daughter will be able to rest a lot more comfortably.

So. What is the take home message?

Once my child was stable I would rather her continue to recover at home....so I bet everything will be fine.

Does this make sense to you?

I hope your daughter continues to have a quick and uneventful recovery. Please give her my best :)

And try to hang in there yourself -- the hardest part is over. I can only imagine what you must be going through.
