Just got off the phone with the schedulers at Duke Eye Center. My baby will have her second eye surgery around 8:45 in the morning.
She's a trooper. We've been talking about what's coming up this week for a few days now. She's not thrilled to be going back again, but sighed and gave an "Okay" when we explained how it will help her continue to see. Her glasses and patch have helped so much already that I think it makes it easier to understand.
As for me, I've done this once before. (I wrote about it here). I know I can do it again. The surgery is minor and routine. Still I must admit that I'm not looking forward to my time back in the waiting chair because anesthesia is anesthesia and I'm not going to pretend to like it.
This time though, I know that there are many out there ~ dear friends, loving family, and even folks who come by Fireworks and Fireflies on a regular basis to check what's going on with our little family ~ that are praying. If you are one of those, THANK YOU! Your prayers got us through last time and we covet them again this time.
Here are a few things on our hearts as we wait for surgery to be complete:
Darcy will not be anxious or afraid as this time she knows what the surgery center is.
Darcy will not be hungry before surgery.
Peace of mind for Ian and I as we wait.
Dr. F's hand to again be skilled.
Darcy will wake up gently from anesthesia.
Darcy will not experience nausea following surgery.
This half of the goiniotomy will get pressure numbers down to where they need to be and Darcy can avoid another eye surgery.
I'll post when we get home tomorrow...
