I spoke to soon yesterday when I said that Grace has not had much swelling. Sunday when I arrived to the unit her right eye was swollen shut and by the end on the day you could just see the tips of her eyelashes. Today (Monday) her right eye is opening up however her left eye is swelling up. No real discolaration (I may regret saying that) as of yet.
Yesterday Grace began to play and sit up more. No real interest in crawling yet. Feedings went ok on Sunday. We took the gauze off yesterday and removed the bandage over the stitches. It was not plesant at first to see Grace’s head like that (we just didn’t know what it would look like) but we know that it was needed so we are good, just tough to look at those blood soaked stitches. It probably helped us when Grace cut her lip a few months ago and needed stiches.
This morning Grace sat up in bed for quite a bit and played with a couple of toys, she’s napping right now and later today we are going to give her a back and work on washing her hair and getting all of the junk out.
We removed Grace’s IV yesterday, she’s getting all meds though her g-tube now (back to normal).
