The surgery went well – it was actually a bit of a nonevent. She was gone for an hour, and when she came back she seemed to be as alert as she was when she left. All afternoon she continued to answer questions and follow us with her eyes, though it seemed like she couldn’t quite get comfortable. I suppose that’s a good thing, because she’s got more awareness with her body, but it was little frustrating for Bo and I because we never could quite figure out what was making her uncomfortable.
We have not seen a doctor since this morning, so perhaps we’ll have news about the ventilator tomorrow. Based on her movements today, I’m pretty sure she’s ready to get rid of that! All her vitals are good, and the swelling in her face and neck seem to have gone down a little tonight. She’s been sleeping pretty well since around 6pm or so – I hope she continues sleeping like this throughout the night so that she can get some good rest after so much movement today.
