Peter's Brain

Peter had his follow up appointment today with the neurosurgeon. We had another CT Scan done so they could review the progress he has made over the past couple of days. 
Peter is doing surprisingly well. He has a little blood left in his skull, but the fractures are healing very nicely. Peter does have a nice bruise on his brain... we're not sure if that will affect him at all. The neurosurgeon says that it is normal and will heal in time just like any other bruise. 

Here's a picture we took tonight of him while getting ready for bed:
As you can see he's 99% better. A little swelling in his eye still, and we hope that is causing the one worry we have left. 
It's hard to see but his left eye is a little lower than his right causing double vision and a couple other problems. We are going back to the Optometrist in early November for what we hope is the last follow up appointment. If his eye does not return to the normal position after the swelling is gone then we'll probably have to have a surgery to raise it back to it's normal position.
