Well we are out of ICU, which is a little concerning, for one thing it means I will be booted out of here at the end of visiting hours tonight. Now on one hand that is a good thing because it means I will be able to get some restful sleep. On the other hand it means leaving my dear, sweet, notoriously discomfort-under-reporting Lady to her own devices. Not happy.
Although she is still making an Olympic sport out of sleeping, and the staff here is very good, so I'm just going to have to get over it. Lisa is thus far doing extremely well psychologically, her right eye has completely swollen shut now, and I seem to recall now reading about that being a delayed event. Glad I got a video capture off the laptop camera this morning before it really started. I'm still trying to figure out how to post it here, it gave me an error when I tried.
Lisa is currently enjoying scrambled eggs and a strawberry frappe, she is on restricted water based beverage intake due to their role in swelling. The food here is pretty interesting, it is a room service menu, pretty much equivalent to a fair quality city hotel. She can order quite a variety of stuff, although one of the things we either missed, or was diplomatically not mentioned prior to surgery, was that they would be cutting some of the major jaw muscles on the right side of her face. I have evoked every possible promise I can from her that she will report any and all discomforts. It's certainly not as bad as leaving her go to surgery alone, but neither will it be easy.
All and all folks things are going extremely well, these are really minor things compared to the worries of a few days ago, gotta watch that getting used to a certain level of anxiety and thinking any stressor automatically keys that same level. I'll tell you something folks, we certainly come with some sloppy software.
