Doing it for the Drugs

Charlotte Amalie will be soaking up some rays this Monday. Laser rays, that is.

Her ROP has progressed to the point where she definitely needs the surgery in her right eye (Stage 2+) and she might need the surgery in her left eye (Stage 2).

They'll check her left eye on Monday and make the decision whether or not to do the surgery or wait on that eye, but the right eye is definitely getting zapped.

She'll be intubated, paralyzed, and sedated.

I think she's doing it for the drugs. And because she doesn't like this whole "breathing on her own" thing.

Kids these days. I'll tell 'ya.


  1. Ugh... I'm sorry-- I know in the grand scheme of things "It could be worse" but still, I'm sorry you need to go through this. Hope she is back to herself very quickly!

  2. Darn. I hope the surgery(ies) goes well and that you are doing well. Let me know if Tuesday is too much for you... I've pretty available, but would love to see you! Hugs!!

  3. oh boo. i'm sorry amanda. we'll keep all of you in our prayers.

  4. Best of luck with the surgery!
