Stitches ~ No Stitches!

Well I got the pictures backwards, but Tuesday Callie got her stitches out.
Her Opthamologist didn't like the way her cornea was looking, so he sent her to
see the corneal specialist. He was concerned that something may need done to
her cornea before Christmas. After the cornea specialist looked at her yesterday,
he feels that nothing needs done right away. She will see him again towards the end of
January. Right now we're just in a holding pattern with the exception of therapy.
She is a 24/7 job to keep her from hurting herself (digging in her eye & nostril on the side
with the palsy, with head & body slams when we try to keep her from it). She doesn't like for us to put the artificial tears & medicine in her eyes (which she needs once every hour around the clock~if you feel to cry for me, you may. I do every now & then). She doesn't seem to have alot of feeling if any on the left side & she really gets herself messed up. Aside from that she is doing so GREAT! Her walking has had major improvement since she had the eyelid lift surgery.
We are so grateful to have her here with us this holiday season & many more to come!

May this Holiday Season be Joyous for You All!

Love The Butler's


  1. I will pray for you and cry with you! I can imagine how frustrating it must be to keep Callie from hurting herself, but also what joy it is to have her here.


  3. How hard Dana~That would almost be impossible to watch her constantly, I can only imagine! and to be so busy with the rest of your family too!! She looks GREAT though!! Im so thankful that you still have her!! I would be crying a lot too! Curtis had an accident a few nights ago~long story but to make it short~a pan of vegetables blew up in his face! (remember the old pressure cookers??)~it could have been SO MUCH worse!! We were definitley blessed also!!! SO SCARY THOUGH!
    Hang in there Dana!! You are doing great~and we can all only imagine what you are going through, and are cheering you on! What an example you are to all of us as a MOM!

    Love you!

  4. Thank youso much for your encouragement, love & support
