Surprisingly, Lily left her head bandage on for 3 days. So today we took the bandage off. She sat so still while I was unwrapping the gauze. It probably felt good to get that big heavy bandage off. As soon as it was all the way off, she started grabbing at her ears so we had to put the pilot cap back on. You can see the bump under her skin where the magnets are. I don't think it's too bad, but Dr. Kang said it is still swollen. Once the swelling goes down, he said the bumps will be more noticeable.
Lily still isn't quite back to herself yet. She is fine during the day, but in the evenings she gets dizzy and sick. The past 2 nights her eyes move back and forth quickly (like she is dizzy) when I lay her down to change her diaper. Then shortly afterward she vomits. Her balance is also much worse than before surgery. When she is sitting and she turns to look at me, she looses her balance and falls over. She is also much more unsteady when crawling and pulling up to stand than before surgery. We took her back to the doctor today to make sure there are no complications. Dr. Kang is a little concerned about the dizzy eye movement. He told us to just watch her to see if it keeps happening. We have another appointment with him next Thursday. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
