He came out of the anesthesia just fine, no screaming or being violent or anything like that. But then he was in so much pain. :,( He kept saying, "It hurts!!!" and squeezing his eyes shut. He couldn't open them because it was too painful. There was a little bit of blood around his eyes, but nothing horrific. We got him some Tylenol and once that kicked in he felt a lot better.
Here he is, drugged up watching cartoons and waiting to go the OR:
And here we are, before surgery:
Once we got home we both crashed. We'd been up since 6 and were TIRED. I had to get up and go to my first pool therapy session. It was really nice, and I look forward to continuing my therapy there. They gave me some exercises to do in the water to strengthen my core.
When I got home, Christian was up and feeling much better. He had his eyes open and was eating. I tried to snap a good picture, but he just looks goofy. :-P
His eyes are still a little swollen, but only bloodshot on the outer corners, so far. Nothing like what I was expecting. We'll see if it gets worse tomorrow, but so far I'm very pleasantly surprised. And so SO glad it's done and over with!!!
