Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Eye surgery

on August 22, 2014

Pippa has come out of surgery but is in a lot of discomfort and pain. From a surgical perspective it went well however until she can open her eye I don’t know if it has resulted in single vision.
Her loving brothers were there for her when she went in and came out of surgery.
Pippa has spent a long time in recovery and we were all a little surprised at her level of discomfort and pain so after a few hours the decision was made to keep Pippa in overnight.
I was not expecting this at all and it’s not normally a requirement. A big thank you to our driver Adriano (Risotto Man to Pippa) who not only picked up James as planned and took him to meet friends at the 4wd exhibition but then came back for Patrick to take him there as well so they can both get a ride home tonight.
I’m sure Pippa will be feeling much better tomorrow.

    Poor Pippa , Seb ( and I) can empathize – remembering the pain from his eye surgery. I don’t think he managed to open his eyes for 2 days…. But it does ease and the pain killers do help.
    Good luck with the recovery. You’ll get there Pippa. Lots of love. The Mottrams. Xxxxx
