Getting back to normal

We expected Natalie to recover well from this eye surgery, since she did so well last time.  She is recovering well, but maybe not quite as well as the last time...a little pain, a little more bothered by it.  She keeps saying, "I hurt my eye!" which tells me it's time for another dose of ibuprofen.

Here's Natalie lounging on the couch last night before bed.  I think she's putting a piece of tape on the Duplo Jessie, and taking it off, putting it on and taking it off.

Tom took her to the follow-up appointment this afternoon so I could go with Lukas to a special event at his one-day-a-week school.  It was great to see Natalie more interactive when they returned...because she could finally put her glasses on.  I know it's hard for her to function with only one eye open, and poor eyesight in that eye but not able to wear glasses over the patch.

Tonight, things were a lot more back to normal, as evidenced by this picture:

Tomorrow, if she's still doing well, Natalie will go back to school.

Poor thing. I'm glad she is starting to feel better and gets to wear her glasses.
