Pictures of Ben's recovery (during the first 13 days)

At the hospital.  Surgery Day.

Day 1 post surgery.

Day 2 post surgery.  He HATED the bandage.  It tooks about 1/2 a day to get it off.  This was when it was almost off...we couldn't get the last part on his cheek off for a while and let him have a break before we tried again. This picture was the first glimpse of the eye we had.  Ben had me take a picture immediately so he could see it.

Slightly later the same day.

After the last little bit was off.

Sleeping on that 3rd night.  

Bruising and a little swollen.  But so much happier without the bandage.

A trip to the firehouse cures all.

Day 4 post surgery.

Day 7 post surgery.

Break in pictures here as we went to Lauren's wedding.  By the time of the wedding, all bruising was totally gone.  This pic was from day 12.

Happy recovery, Ben! It seems like you are healing wonderfully and feeling good. I'm so glad that you and Lincoln like your new school - what a big boy going to Pre-K! Sending lots of love and hugs to you all from us!
