In post-surgery news, the surgeons are very pleased with Eves surgery, the swelling is normal (not normal looking... but supposedly normal), and she will probably get her drain out, and turban cut off tomorrow morning. She ate well all day, but stopped eating around 2:30pm and vomited around 7:30 so they are going to put her on IV fluids. I am afraid that the fluid will cause her to swell more, but she can't not get fluids, so that is our best option right now.
The first set are Brian's, that he took before, during, and after surgery yesterday.
playing in the yard the night before surgery...
"circle prayer" before bed
the worst part of the day...
out and beautiful as ever!!!
it felt SO. GOOD. to be with her again.
these are pictures from my phone... so you can see the progression of Evie's swelling.
in the pre-op area (: my smiley girl as always!
she couldn't wait to eat!
Saturday morning, a little puffy....
... and Saturday night (tonight).
the swelling is actually supposed to peak tomorrow, but I'm praying that it's done... I really don't know where more fluid would go. She is starting to get a little splitting of the skin under her eye, if it separates any more they will call the plastic surgeon to check it out.
Thanks for praying, and for your encouragement. I can't believe how many emails, comments, and facebook posts we have gotten all week, especially the past two days. It has made this surgery bearable, and good. I can feel God's blanket of prayer and protection around us all, especially Evie.
Keep it up!!!!! LOVE YOU friends (:
