we got the Ct Scan results back.
She has a fracture underneath her skull. in the orb of her eye.
apparently the skull has layers. and for babies, the underneath
layers are softer than the top.
the hematoma that formed because of the fracture is what
caused her eye to droop. we are praying that it resolves itself.
today is the first day that she is showing signs that it might be
getting better. i attribute that to much prayer and concern of
all of our families.
her eye is still bruised , and still not in its orb.
but we have found ( who we think) are really competent doctors
we are hoping and praying that the bone thing will not really be an
issue. her eye brow bone is a little smashed in. she could grow,
and that might not be an issue. if it is, we are going to have to get her
plastic surgery. if there is nothing but the eye issue, we will just have
our pediatric opthamologist operate, they just go through the eyelid
and dont have to cut.
i know, its a bit morbid explaining all this ---sorry.
thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers.
we know she will get better. she is such a sweet little baby.
she has had minimal complaining and fussiness.
