Update on Shmoo
Here's another picture of my baby. He's actually looking alot better. The shiny stuff on his face is the ointment for the abrasions. His lips are almost normal size now which helps because he can eat a bit better and use a straw.
Today we go back to opthamologist for update on the eye. There is a tear in the corner near his nose but that is outside the eye. The tear they are worried about is actually on the cornea. The doctor didn't want it to tear any more or bleed again so Shmoo has been on bedrest. He's supposed to try to not cough or sneeze. Wednesday he said he had to sneeze really bad but tricked himself out of the urge.
It's like he's a toddler again because I have to wait on him for just about everything. He's a pretty good patient and hasn't whined or complained at all. In fact yesterday he had a couple of his usual sarcastic snarky remarks and I was actually glad to hear it because it means he's getting back to normal. Thank God for the TV series DVDs of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and FIREFLY. They have kept him quiet and occupied.
I want to thank all of you for your kind words and thoughts. I've passed them on to my kiddo. Keep your fingers crossed for us that our appointment later today at the opthamologist goes well.
The bleeding has stopped and the tear in the cornea appears to be healing but there is still alot of swelling. We have to go back next Friday again, but (THANK GOD!!) he is off bed rest and seems to be well on the road to recovery.
