Reese had surgery to repair her entropion (her eyelid rolling in and rubbing against her eye) was today. They were running behind so her surgery happened later than intended. They did give her some morphine. But at the moment, she is sitting in front of me playing on Dad's iPhone. She might actually be more lively than my mom who has been working outside in the heat 6 out of 7 days. You can see a small dark line under her eye where they removed some tissue to make the eyelid roll out appropriately. She's upset because you can see it, and there are stitches. We told her give it a little bit, and you won't even be able to see it. I also offered her eyeliner if she decided her other eye needed to match. It largely looks, to me, like she has dark eyeliner on her lower lid. I think this will be good for preventing further scarring to her cornea though. She has a follow-up appointment Tuesday, but if everything looks fine, she doesn't need to go. She'll see the doctor again in 6 weeks for a follow-up regardless.
