Recovery 8a

What a beautiful day!  Matthew's pain was well managed last night and he slept mostly through the night.  At 7a, as I fed him, I saw his eyeballs!  He can see out of slits, meaning his swelling is diminishing (somewhat quicker than I expected).  I also think I saw him try to crack a smile.  Yippee!

I'm hopeful today Matthew will be able to tolerate being held.  They recommend holding him to reduce head swelling and that is usually the best way comfort him, but since the surgery holding him seems to cause him greater pain.  Sad for both of us.  I miss holding my sweet baby. 

Again, we are humbled by the love and support we receive daily during Matthew's journey. 'Thank you' does not seem like enough, but thank you!!
