Danny CAN and does close his eye. I was watching him while I was reading to him tonight and when he blinks, his right eye, the ptosis eye, only flinches. It doesn't blink along with the other one. But when he went to close his eyes to sleep, he shut it just fine. It looks like he raises the bottom lid up to close the gap.
As far as symmetry goes, it is too early to tell how even they are because of swelling. I'll keep you updated.
Danny slept from about 11am on the car ride home from the hospital until 3pm when I went to give him Tylenol with Codeine. He slept well except for a couple times where he would whine for a few seconds. He didn't really want to wake up at first, but when he did he was happy. The swelling had increased a lot. This picture is from just after he woke up:At 3:30pm I gave him Amoxicillin and ointment on his stitches. He ate a slice of bread and relaxed and watched TV for an hour. Then he decided it was time to play. He gave me his pacifier and sippy cup, then started acting like a normal two year old. Around 6pm he had mac & cheese for dinner, had some Motrin after complaining about his eye a little, then relaxed in front of the TV. He was really tired. Just before 7pm I put him to bed. He felt a little warm and may have had a slight fever. A little after 7pm, he came wandering out of his room. I was able to give him the Amoxicillin and ointment that I had forgotten earlier. But then he decided he wanted to sit with me at watch Mickey Mouse Club house for a couple hours. At 9pm I have him Tylenol with Codeine and put him to bed. When he went to bed the surgical tape was off of one of his incision. This picture was him just before he want to bed (wearing Dad's socks):
Danny woke up around 7am. He woke up happy had feeling fine. I gave him Amoxicillin but no pain killers. He looked a little less swollen and all the surgical tape was gone from his incisions. This picture was taken just after he woke up so his eyes look a little sleepy still:
This picture was around 9am:
