Painful Recovery, First Milestone Finished

Dear friends and family:

Today Kerry reached a milestone in her recovery process: she passed the 48-hour mark since the time of the surgery. The doctors said the first 48 hours would be the toughest... and they were very difficult. The main problem has been the intense pain in her right eye. The worst of it should be over, though. Today, she was able to "double up" on the vicodin medication, per the instructions from one of the nurses. This has also made a difference for the better, although it makes her feel very sleepy. Today was also the first day with no eye patch; this makes putting the antibacterial eye drops a lot easier.

Please pray that Kerry will be able to get a good night sleep tonight and that the pain will continue to subside. She is a long way from feeling normal. Please also continue to pray that when the surgeries are all completed and Kerry has fully healed that she will have regained the eyesight she once had... that would be a huge blessing !

We have much to be thankful for. God is working out His perfect plan for Kerry and we thank Him for that. We also want to thank the wonderful angels that have been bringing meals to us. Thank you, thank you, thank you ! ! !

God is good and we thank Him for wonderful friends like you !!!
