Once Charlee discovered that we were working with sweet frosting and candy, she was more interested in eating rather than building

I'm just scratching my upper lip not picking my nose.

As you remember, last time the eyes were looking good after one week but re-crossed by the 6 week follow up appointment. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Charlee's eye behave themselves so we don't have to do this again.
She has been having a bit of pus from both eyes so we are continuing her eye drops until they are gone. The eye drops are in a small bottle so I'm not sure how long we will be doing the drops.
The stent in the tear duct seems to be working like a charm.

Her eyes are still blood, much more than the first surgery but the tears are nice and clear. Yesterday at the hospital she was crying blood tears. Her eyes are sensitive to the light so we have keep the windows closed and staying inside. I tried to take better pictures of her eyes so everyone could see the detail but she wouldn't hold still and the flash was a bit much.
Thank you for all the phone calls, e-mails, thoughts, kisses, hugs, etc...

Her tears are bloodier than last time and there is bloody drainage from her nose because of the stent that they placed in her right tear duct. She also got her blood drawn and a catheterized urine sample to evaluate her kidneys because of the possible exposure to the tainted Chinese baby formula with Melamine. We can't do just a simple surgery, we always have to add something else.
Charlee playing while Mom gets checked-in and signs alot of papers. It was almost as bad as buying a house.
Pre-op area. "Look at my Koala Bear Jammies"

Let's just hope this is the last eye surgery for this little girl.
Charlee was not into Halloween on Friday the 31st. It was a struggle to get the costume on and leave it on. We went Trick or Treating at one house and that was enough for her. She loved passing out candy at Grandma and Papa's house until the Joker showed up. The Joker scarred her so bad that she dropped the full bowl of candy on the porch. She didn't want the Joker to come back. This is funny because her cousin was the Joker in PA.
On Saturday, we went over to Great-Grandma's to show her the alligator and Charlee couldn't get enough of her costume. Out of the clear blue, Charlee said she was a "Dragon".
Way back when, Charlee said she wanted to be an Alligator for Halloween but there were no Alligator costumes to be found. I looked all over the internet and Pennsylvania. The Alligator/Dragon costume was the closest I could find. It was so cute that I couldn't resist and Charlee loved it from the beginning.
