Day 11

We are quite happy that the storm (hurricane Sandy)didn't wreak more havoc in our area than a mere 6 1/2 hour power outage, which we mostly slept through.
Lis' last day on steroids was Sunday, and it does seem like her headaches have been a bit worse since then but, what seems to bother her most is what she refers to as "the oddness" over most of the right side of her face, the visible signs of the surgery are all either stable or slowly decreasing, while her activity level continues to increase, as far as frequency, we are being very careful about the range of activity. All in all things continue to go extremely well, much better than expected.
Here's a photo from day 2 with the dreaded compression wrap.
So we're settling in, and still figuring it out, I'm still tending to want to do everything for her but, I don't think this is going to be a successful strategy for much longer, she is starting to want to do some of the food preparation, I may just have to relent on that a bit.
Oh and it seems the surgical team is impressed with how well things are going, Dr. Al Meftie has requested a picture of Lis for a presentation he is doing. We happily sent him one, that man is an incredible surgeon.
