So for those of you waiting for another update on ‘the eye” as we call it you won’t be disappointed!  In my last blog post my gorgeous son was about to have eye surgery to try to repair a traumatic macular hole caused by a misthrown baseball earlier in the year.  Well since that blog post he has in fact had a second surgery as well on that stubborn eye!

His first surgery was a success as far as the actual operation went, and my son was a superstar throughout it all.  His recovery was laying facedown on his tummy facing the floor for almost two weeks and off school for three!  He then was able to go back to school but after a week was told he had to go back onto his tummy again!  Poor little thing (well he’s almost 6 foot so not so little!).  He had multiple eyedrops 6 times a day which gradually got less as he healed.

Unfortunately the hole in his macular just did not want to do the right thing so he had to go back for round two.  This was done just last week.  No news yet as to how it’s going as his eye is once again filled with an ocular implant (gas) so the surgeon can’t see in fully yet.  Had to get the stitches removed today as they were inflaming/irritating his eyelid.  He’s such a trouper ♥

Keep your fingers crossed for a good outcome xx

 

P.S. My gorgeous middle son is coming home from college in America for Christmas!  Cue the happy dancing!  I cannot wait to have all of my three awesome young men home together again ♥
