Well we are all settled into the hospital. Kevin's surgery is first case in the morning and I am estimating him leaving his room around 7am or so. The surgeon said he should be done around noon with the cranioplasty, but I don't know if the Botox is following or if they are doing it at the same time. We shall see, I guess.
So they tell me the plate is beautiful. This one was built to replace the fatty tissue and muscle that was lost when Kev landed on his head - it's what should have been done the first time at the VA in FL and all of this is because it wasn't done right back then. I am so anxious to see what he looks like after the surgery.
Kevin is skeptical. He doesn't believe it will look as good as they say because he thought that the last time. It's amazing that he can remember that - but not what he wants to tell me if I take my time getting to his room. So strange, huh?
So anyway, it's like a family reunion here, lol. Everyone is so excited to have Kevin back at BAMC and they are all coming in and visiting and playing quick games with him on his iPad. He is just lapping it all up. It makes me happy ;-)
And now I am going to sign off and read while the lights are allowed on. I will post as soon as I can after his surgery and let y'all know how it went. Wish us luck!
