Brenna had her follow-up opthamology appointment yesterday, and it went well. Dr. Su advised us to put in lubricating drops more often since she still can't close her eyes all the way when she's sleeping, and there were some dry spots on her lower eyes.
Brenna has now been home for more than a week. When I think about all of the weeks ahead that will be filled with this crazy new routine, I feel overwhelmed and exhausted....so I am just going to focus on the fact that we had one whole successful week and keep taking each day as it comes!
We have been so blessed to have some help from family and friends who are taking time out of their days to help me with mine. The first day Evan returned to work, I ended up sitting and playing Play-Doh with Connor and crying. So I decided right then that even though I am disappointed that I am in such a "needy" position now after being so used to having my household running like clockwork, I am asking for help more!
In other news, Connor got what appears to have been a 24-hour flu yesterday and was throwing up the whole day. It wasn't pretty, and it wasn't fun to deal with on top of taking care of Brenna and praying that she (and us!) didn't get sick too. So far, so good.
We are still amazed at the thoughtfulness and generosity that people are continuing to show toward us, and we can't thank you all enough. The pure kindness of acquaintances and complete strangers is so uplifting during this time of transition!
