Our family from Rhode Island, Andrew & Yavonka, came up last night and we went out to dinner. On our crazy drive thru Boston we passed by China Town and let me just say that was pretty amazing! As Yavonka said, it looked just like a movie set! We enjoyed getting to see them again before we left town. Last night we all got some much needed uninterrupted sleep, which was much needed! Our flight leaves @ 1pm today and we are all anxious to get home!! I am ready to see the family & the dogs!!
Now everyone has had lots of questions about the surgery so let me try to answer the most common oquestions & clarify some other questions.Yes she has swelling in the face that will take about 4 weeks to totally subside. Her eyelid swelling should subside in about a week. She does have 6 incisions. One long incision on the face, one in the left crease of the nose, 2 small incisions on the outer right thigh,one long incision on the inner right thigh, & one on the eyelid. Mobility seems to be ok but she does move slower. The leg is pretty sore. The left eye does close now and should still close once the swelling subsides! This is very exciting!!! Now for the biggest question when will she see result on the face. If this surgery is successful, & we are very POSITIVE that it will be, movement occurs in 8-12 months. We know back to the waiting game, which to be honest sucks but the results will be worth waiting for! So for know we focus on healing, getting her mobility back to her normal, and going on with life. Jordan is ready to be done with surgeries!
I will updated the blog later tomorrow after we get home and get settled in! Thanks for all the thoughts & prayers!!
