2 steps forward...1 step back

Mom had been doing really well. Her incision was pink and barely seeping, she was getting up easier on her own, even to the point of saying it was easier to get up from the bed now than before the surgery. But then we noticed the change in her vision and the change in her prescription was made and she wore the brace a long time even though she was in pain. So now she has had a rough night. We got the OK from the doctor to switch from Darvocet to Vicodin and possibly both if Vicodin on its own doesn't work. Her incision is red (I don't think it is infected, but from the stress of having the brace on). She has been sleeping off and on for the past 24 hours. Maybe I pushed her too far, maybe the pain medication isn't right, maybe maybe maybe............For now rest is in order and hopefully we will be back on that right road to a speedy recovery in no time at all.
