Well I have been getting alot people asking about what's going on due to my lack of posting...apologies.. Been a rough couple week with her future surgery, and Safiya has been getting up every couple hours at night...so sleep for me has been at a minimum...especially this week. The inlaws are here giving me a break right ...which is great.
Carol is doing fairly well. She hasn't set the next surgery date for sure...but it will probably be in February. Plans have been made to keep her busy rehabbing after while she is healing with blind issues. Organizing things in the house, and putting certain sticky thing on everything to make them identifiable. Many other things on those lines. I have been busy on trying to find a house for us to live in/buy. WE rent now, and longterm no house at least here will be turn key for us. I think we can make anything work, but a specific bath and kitchen remodel would be nice wherever we end up.
No real health changes for Carol. Her finger from the burn is almost healed. She is still getting up on her legs although painful.
She has been having some visual changes. Her pupils aren't really dilated like they used to be for some reason. You know when you see a blind person, there pupils are always very dilated, as was Carol's. There are times she thinks she is seeing shadows, blues, and bright light. Who knows.
Safiya has started eating rice cereal and other stuff. She is getting much taller lately. She said dada for the first time on the 15th ( a couple days ago). More later.
