Yesterday was a wonderful celebration and we were all amazed at how long Jodi kept going. She may have overdone it a bit, as she slept for over 10 1/2 hours last night!! (Of course, that could also be because she finally had a night of uninterrupted sleep!)
Today was a good day for her, but she was still exhausted from her big day yesterday, so she did a lot of sleeping and resting. We all think she may have unrealistic expectations for her recovery, as she had already created an agenda for herself of the things she wanted to get done. However, after getting worn out from just washing her hair, she quickly realized the agenda had to go.
Jodi has been told she can get her craniotomy incision wet, but not "soak" it for fear of infection. She was so proud of herself for coming up with a creative way to get clean without soaking half her head, but she forgot one little detail... As the soapy water fell over her face, she realized she couldn't close her right eye (like she normally would) so her eye burned and got irritated from the water. Still a small thing, but big enough to encourage her to call and make her appointment with the Moran Eye Enter. She will go on Thursday, then hopefully have the procedure done next week to insert a gold weight into her eyelid so it will be able to close.
A good first day at home.
