X hit 8lbs yesterday.They removed the last of the stitches since they were causing more irritation than them helping. They are putting a 2x2 gauze in between his skin and the button, since they are now thinking all the swelling and irritation are actually caused by the button itself since the cultures they took are not growing anything. What the surgeon assumed was that since he is putting on more fat is that there is no room between the button and his skin, and it is kind of pressing into his skin. He said at the check up, he will put in a larger size button, but cant do it yet, because if it comes out before scar tissue has formed, he will have to do the whole procedure all over again. At least we have no infection, as of yet.
