She did very well with her fasting, I tried my best to get to the hospital early to get a close park, entertain her in the hospital playground and the starlight room before going to day surgery. Distraction is the key for Miss V.
She did mention once we were admitted that she was thirsty and hungry a few times :( I just said everyone in the waiting room is and that kept her quiet for a little bit longer each time.
Of course once she knew the dreaded mask was going on, she was screaming and had 4 of us holding her down for the GA.
One of the other reasons for the EUA today besides the normal thorough check of both her eyes was to check the pressure in her seeing eye (right eye) as she has been having headaches for so long now and both her Neurologist and Neurosurgeon were concerned the reason may be an increase in the pressure she already has on her optic nerve in that eye.
Today Violet had a different Opthamologist performing the EUA and he met with me after to let me know these results and also ask me why she was not already wearing glasses when she is short sighted in her right eye.
Well, that has been my question for a long time as well but they have never bothered to give her any for some unknown reason. He thought it was ridiculous and he wrote a script to be taken to the Optometrist to get Violet some glasses. It was taken from her eye while under the GA so would be obviously best to get the reading when she is awake, but don't know how compliant she would be for that! Also not sure now at 5 ½ how compliant she will be in wearing them!
Great news is the pressure in the right eye has not increased! So no answers still as to why she is getting these daily headaches as yet.
Violet's new scleral shell should be ready in the next 6 weeks.
