Frontalis Sling Surgery - 24 Hours Post Surgery

Posted Jun 16 2012 9:45pm
We had a crummy night's sleep. Or at least I did. Steve slept on the couch so Ainsley could sleep in our bed. She has to sleep with her head elevated for the first 2 nights. Her crib doesn't have enough space to do that. Besides she needs care in the middle of the night, especially post-surgery. I think I must have suctioned 30 times last night. Having her in my bed makes it easier, but still....

But I think she slept okay and she was pretty much ready to wake up at 9am. Here she is 24 hours post-op. Wearing the same purple "shirt" because she doesn't have any other button down tops. (We have to be careful of the eyes.) She smiled at me while we were in bed so I knew she'd have a pretty good day. The thing about Ainsley is she heals amazingly fast. We had more smiles throughout the day. She's not "herself" but is on her way.

A few hours later I let her know she could get off the couch if she wanted and she responded right away. I think maybe she thought she wasn't allowed. That helped her mood considerably. Even though she loves to watch DVD's she really is usually always doing something else at the same time. So then she was all over the place doing her usual things.
