Surgery: Day Two Update (new hair do)


Lauren slept through the night and didn't take off her new bandage wrap. She is starting to get used to it now but it does slide down over her eyes from time to time. We started her on the antibiotics that was prescribed by the doctor. She doesn't seem like she has been in any pain today so we haven't had to give her any medication. The doctor just recommended normal Tylenol if she needed it. She is in good spirits but just a bit tired. Overall, she is doing better than we both thought she would be doing. She even mentioned to us today that she can hear out of her new ear. We are hopeful that is the case. It would still be limited especially with so many bandages and packing in her new ear canal. Either way, she says she can hear which makes the trip here worth it. Again, we won't know for sure until she has another audio-gram in a couple months.

I am so glad that the surgery went ok. That is great that she says she can hear better and is keeping the bandage in place. My prayers are with you.

Yeah! I am so happy for her- the fact that she notices a difference already makes me cry. What a sweet little girl. I hope they discharged you today & the trip home goes smoothly.
