It's Time For The Big Surgery
Well the time has come for my daughter's eye appointment when we talk about the big surgery on her two lazy eyes. She was diagnosed with two lazy eyes last October. We were told that it's a hereditary thing. According to the doctor she was born with this. My father was also born with a lazy eye and had surgery several years ago. The glasses that were prescribed for our little one don't seem to be doing the job that the doctor had hoped. I'm assuming the first surgery will be sometime in June. I'm not sure how soon after the first surgery that we have to wait until she will need the second surgery. Yes, we were told she will probably need two operations to correct her eyes. It just kills me that my little four year old has to go through this, but we have no choice at this point. It must be done. If we wait to long it could damage her site permanently, and I don't want that. I'm a little concerned about how we are suppose to come up with the money to pay for our huge deductible on our insurance policy. It looks like we are going have to pay $1,000.00 to cover the deductible. My hubby's employer down graded our insurance policy a year ago and it's been a struggle paying for medical bills lately. I'm thinking about looking into a second policy through Blue Advantage. Maybe that would ease this financial pain. So please keep your fingers crossed that this surgery will be a success.
