We had a bit of a rough night. I was surviving on less than 5 hours sleep and Ainsley kept waking crying every 10-20 minutes or so just when I'd fall asleep. She finally started to settle about 2:30 am but then we got a roommate at about 3:30 am. Then the doctors started showing up about 6:30. I think she was mostly unhappy to be there so I pushed to get discharged as soon as possible. We had the paperwork complete and everything packed up by 10:30am.
The boots were filled and we were on our way. It felt great to get her back in the stroller and push her on out the doors!
I wish I could say that made all the difference. I would be lying. She is miserable. Mostly I think because her eyes are swollen shut so she can't see. She HATES that! I think the oxycodone is enough for the pain. All the memories are coming back, and I'm remembering how hard it was and will be again until she can see. My recollection is it takes about a week. The problem is she cries if I leave her, even to get up for a minute. I'm not going to be able to sit in bed with her 24/7 for a week. And the crying isn't good for the swelling.
Her eyes are SO puffy, even more so than this morning as you can see in this picture I just took.
It doesn't look too bad in the picture but there isn't much more it could swell. I'm hoping we are at the peak now and it will start to get better rather than worse.
Little cutie. She could hear I was taking her picture and I think she was trying to smile. A+ for effort Ainsley after what you've been through.
