Surgery went well yesterday. She was ticked at the world before we even got there. She didn't have surgery till 10:30 but we had to be there at 9:30. Because of the reflux though they let me give her jello at 7:30 with her meds. She liked that!
she screamed and cried and clung to me till 10:30 when the happy drugs were given to her. Well.. they didn't work, she was still crying the whole time but couldn't hold up her own head
Surgery started at 11 and lasted an hour. It went as well as it could. She woke up VERY mad, screaming, ripping out her IV, ripping at her bandage on her eye. Screaming!!!! They even gave her another dose of meds to keep her calm, so don't want to see her not calm then.
They released us even though she was screaming so much. Thank goodness!!!
Doctor said it went well, they placed an implant in her eye to help her see better. Said it will be 2-3 days though before we really know how it will look.
Last night was rough, she was upset, belly hurt, eye was swollen, bloody and hurt. Gave her motrim to try to help her. She slept with me all night and had me "rub" her eye. Which means I held my thumb on her eye and jsut sat there. She woke at 4 this morning with it hurting and watery, more motrim and she fell back to sleep at 6!! Had to get up at 6:45 with Nichole though!!

that's the update off to the post op right now!

thanks today was not good


update on Avery... her post op today did not go well. The doctor saw something behind the lens. He was concerned about it and sent us to the Texas eye Institute. They did an ulrasound on her eye. There is a place in her eye that they suspect possible detached Retina. They sent us to the Retina Foundation to see a ...specialist. Scary thing when you walk into these places and they ask if you are "Avery" and usher us to a room imediately where a doc comes in 3 minutes later. the doctor is not convinced the retina is detaching. We don't know for sure though. Avery is on steroid drops every 2 hours. She will have another ultrasound next week to see if the swelling help relieve the "possible retinal detachment" then in 2 weeks when she has her other surgery, the retina specialist will be present to see her eye. Prayers that the steroids heal her eye and that there are no further complications.

Ugh! So sorry things didn't go well today. Praying her retina is *not* detaching and the steriods will do their job.
