PreOp Completed

Today, he had his preoperative appointment.  They took his vitals, ran a full blood panel, and took his medical history.

The nurse practitioner went over his preop instructions, like no food after midnight, etc… She said the surgery should take two and a half hours, but I don’t believe that one bit.  An eye lid lift just on it’s own is estimated to take an hour, so I have a feeling this one might take longer.  I guess we will find out in 2 weeks!

Of course healing time varies per person, and we can’t even begin to pretend to know how long that will take.  It could be a few days before he is ready to jump on the computer, or it may be a few weeks.  Again, we will see.

I am planning on taking the first week off of work to be home and will play a second week by ear.  I can’t do my new job from home, so I may need to come in to take care of some imaging and shipping, but again, we will see.

That’s it for this update!  I will try to get some before photos if David will let me, so we can post them for comparison after.

Thanks for following our journey!
