Just so all you know if you didn't already. Lily has her eye surgery tomorrow at 8am. I will probably be home and Taking care of her. I won't be on much because my mom and Shawn will be home helping me take care of her. Please please please, keep her in your thoughts and prayers.. I would really appreciate it. Throughout the day today I will be cleaning her room and trying to keep it clutter free I am also going to set stuff up for her in her room to prepare her for her drops and if she gets sick. Its common in his family to be sick after the anesthesia. Although this will be a tough time, its just a bump in the road to her recovery. She still might have to do some Vision therapy.

My anxiety is through the roof today. I might have to take a Benadryl or something that will get me more relaxed. I am so nervous!!! I am more ready for it to be over with than the actual surgery. I trust that he will do a good job. But, 4 hours that will be there will be the longest 4 hours of my life. I hope you guys have a great day tomorrow! My mothers birthday is tomorrow too. I totally forgot that it was her birthday due to Lily's surgery. She understands though

Thanks for your support ladies.

Keeping you guys in my T's and P's. Hopeing that she is in recovery now and feeling okay.

Oh, on a side note, if the doc doesn't tell you, don't freak about the blood red eyes. It does dissapear in a few days. When Alexis had hers done, I called her my devil child, lol. Also, make sure she doesn't rub her eyes, as after surgery it will feel gritty like there is sand in her eyes, so just use tylenol or advil to help relieve it.

Let us know how it went when you get a chance.

Lily did fine. Her eyes were red on the sides now on her left eye its turning a bit yellow. Its scaring me a bit. But her DR. visit is today. She took to the anesthesia really well. I was so proud of her!! Thanks for the well wishes. I am super excited to see the results. Its like a new child I swear. She likes to get into more stuff now
