Olive is doing great. Around midnight last night all her nausea was gone and the majority of her pain has went down significantly. She is still on round the clock pain meds but she reports that her head is no longer throbbing like it normally does.
So that means that Olive is in less pain after removal of a piece of her skull and her spine than she was in her everyday life. Her normal medications of Tylenol and Advil are all that she is getting as well as a muscle relaxant to help with her neck muscles that are constricting due to the incision. Seems like the surgery was a success we are hopeful that there is not a slow return of symptoms over time and that she won’t need another surgery.
