Another surgery!

Sad Summer...cute pouty lip :)

This is the cutest cross-eyed baby ever! She gets excited or sleepy and her eyes roll around in her funny. But, not so funny. We went to an Opthomology check up yesterday and her eyes are not improving with the patching we are doing, so they want to correct them surgically. We have been watching her vision for the past few months and it has been fine so far. However, the right eye, which is the one that crosses in the most, is not as strong as the left. In order to keep her eyes progressing with good vision, the issue needs to be repaired. Generally the doc tries to avoid surgery with glasses and patching, but in Summer's case, she doesn't need corrective lenses, so the glasses wouldn't help.

So, back to the OR we go! They will make a couple of stitches to tack the muscle down and straighten out the is a day surgery procedure, but still requires anesthesia....sigh. The surgery will be in the next month or so...I am just waiting for a scheduler to call me.

Can we ever have too many pictures? I think not! ;)

Happy baby...

  1. Did you know #5 had eye surgery when he was 10 or 11 months old? His right eye was crossed. We patched the left for a few months, and he also wasn't a candidate for glasses. We went in the morning. He was a nursing baby and I couldn't feed him for several hours-that was the hardest part. They clipped and stitched two muscles in both eyes. They did the good eye too, so they could match them precisely. After some time in recovery we took him home and his eyes were straight. Bloodshot for a few days, but straight. This surgery is a piece of cake compared to what she's already been through.
