Post-Surgery Day #2

Avery's Ocular Surgeon Fellow and Plastic Surgeon Fellow came to see her this morning. They say she is looking good. The swelling and bruising are definitely increasing and will continue to increase over the next couple of days. They anticipate her finally being able to start opening an eye by Friday. I am looking forward to her seeing me again. She continues to take Morphine, but will likely switch to Tylenol with Codeine today. She will also get her catheter out today and go off the IV fluids once the Neurosurgeon Fellow comes to check on her. She is also on a steroid to help control the swelling. She has been eating very well, which is great! It was a very long night for us, but we are doing well.

Thanks to everyone for all the text, emails, posts and voicemails. I really appreciate it.

  1. Aww - precious baby! The swelling is hard but it should go down pretty soon. I just love her little purple hospital gown. Kyra had the same one & I grew so attached to it that I actually asked to keep it! Hang in there! She's doing great.
