I know it's been a while since I talked about my little one's surgery with her lazy eyes. We got the final diagnosis a few weeks ago. I guess I had to give myself some time to digest all this news before I could blog about it. We were told by the pediatric ophthalmologist a few weeks ago that the glasses my little one has been wearing since February have not strengthened her eye muscles at all. It was a huge disappointment for us. We were hoping that we could avoid the surgery, but that's just not the case. We have decided to opt for surgery. When my little one looks at something close up, such as a book, her poor eyes cross in. It's just not one eye, it's both of her eyes. It's not a constant crossing, but it happens frequently through the day. She told me a few days ago that she sees two of mommy when this happens. Just those few words from my 4 year olds mouth helped me make the toughest decision of my life. Dang, it's hard being a parent when you have to make tough choices like this. I wasn't sure at first that I wanted to put her through this, but I don't think I have a choice now. Having two crossed eyes will for sure effect her education and her self esteem down the road. If I don't agree to the surgery I will be doing her a great injustice. I know in my heart it's better to have the surgery done while she is still young. There's a better chance of success with the eyes staying straight. So, I finally scheduled the surgery for June 8th and I'm completely terrified. The hospital is one of the best pediatric hospitals in the state, but I just can't help but worry. That's a mothers right. Right? I know things will work out. Please keep your fingers crossed and keep her in your prayers and thoughts. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.
