Haven was taken to the 4th floor of the pediatric building. She had a private room to recover in. About 2 hours after surgery they said she could have something to eat and she was so excited because I was going to get to feed her like a baby. We had lots of fun playing "Guess what food this is?". She was very happy to get carrots because as she says "they are good for the eyes".
As soon as Haven was conscious enough she wanted to make some phone calls. As soon as she got out of surgery she was begging to call Lauren. She had to call Lauren because she told Lauren she would. We called Lauren twice and left a message. Then when Lauren called back she got in trouble for not answering her phone and was told that she couldn't put her phone back in her purse incase Haven needed to call. It was very sweet. Sorry family - Lauren came first! :) But Lauren is her bestest friend she says.
Haven's port. She likes to check out her port every day to make sure it is looking ok. She also likes to look at it a million times when it's accessed. She said I had to show everyone how it looks and that it doesn't hurt when it's paper tape.
This is Miss Haven's right eye. They had to do both eyes. The doctor said the absolute way to check the eye roll is when they are asleep. We thought only one of Haven's eyes were bad but when she is asleep both eyes roll very far out and a lot of correction had to be done on both.
Haven's nurse, Kim, came in and this was Haven's most dreaded time. She had been anxious about removing the tape from the port and removing the needle. She wanted to make sure this nurse knew how to do it like Nurse Katie does. She asked if they could make her sleep to remove the tape. But we made it through and Haven helped out.
This is a close up of Haven's eyes on Friday evening. Check out the difference. The doctor did an awesome job and we are very happy with everything.
Haven slept very happy last night. She slept all night and never woke up and I don't believe she even talked in her sleep. She woke up around 8am this morning and went back to sleep around 10am. We told her she could sleep all day and even at 2pm she is still asleep. :)
We are happy to have our baby back home. All of Haven's photos are uploaded in to her FLICKR account. You can click HERE to see all of them.
