The Silver Lining
After writing a post that is sure to worry the dickens out of everyone who loves Julia (and us too), I felt I owed it to everybody to share a nice moment we just had. Julia is finally sleeping although still tossing and turning a bit...during one turn, the gauze covering her head slipped off entirely. To say I freaked is an understatement. I was trying to get Michael to press the emergency button but he was pretty sure it only warranted a standard nurse phone call. Her wonderful nurse (seriously, the woman is a saint) came in with a helper and removed the wrap entirely and put on a new one. We got to see the incision and it's clean, dry, and sealed tight as a drum. There's no way she could have hurt herself. It made us both feel infinitely better. The incision is not nearly as grisly as I thought it might be either. So we're both feeling more positive and hopefully she'll get some quality sleep and not be as miserable when she wakes up.
