Post Op: Update on Demi

Demi did extremely well post anesthesia. She slept a lot so that made her immediate healing and our drive home as easy as it could be. We are so fortunate!! The day after surgery (the day we drove home) we had to add in eye drops. Oh my…. eye drops. These drops are not for…

Surgery is Done: Healthy Healing

Demi did great in surgery. Her surgeon was able to accomplish what he hoped without the retina tearing. So now we pray! We pray for her retina to reattach. We do know it’s extremely thin but we believe it will attach just fine! She has a patch on her eye until tomorrow for now. We…

Big Day Approaching: Big Prayers Going Up

Today was Demi’s pre-op appointment with her retinal surgeon. It was the usual.. 10.5 hours there and back, eye drops, ultrasound of the eyes and then the exam, with crying throughout.
