Maddie update

Maddie is doing so well. She has only taken the Tylenol with codeine once - because we made her - the first night after surgery. Last night she took some motrin just to be safe. Her eye is swollen - but not swollen shut. She is a little black and blue but she was getting a black eye even before the surgery.

Yesterday she was able to sit and watch TV without having to cover her right eye. She said the double vision is getting better. She said things aren't as far apart as they were before the surgery.

We go back to see the surgeon on Monday afternoon.

Thank you all for your prayers. Please keep us in your prayers - that her recovery will continue to go well.
