Ollie had his surgery , having a shunt put into his brain, and into his tummy to drain the fluid that his first surgery didn't correct. He will have this permanantly, and baring no complications for plugging up with fluids, or other things, he can do whatever he is able given his abilitiies with being sightless.
He tolerated the surgery ok, but they had to medicate him before he was taken to recovery for some reason, adding to the worry of those of us who were in the waiting room.. Finally got the news he was ok, and we would be able to see him later in the afternoon.. phew, was that a scary wait not knowing..
Anyway, very draining few days, but did want to update as I know many of Ollie's Angels here have asked how he is doing .. here are 2 photos of him once he was in his own room yesterday(Friday).. Happily drinking his water at this time of photo, though he is having a hard time holding down formula, or any food.. Post op meds are making him struggle with keeping anything down right now..
