I have been meaning to make a post but I guess I was in denial. We saw Edyn's dr last December and he said she needed a second surgery. I cried for days. I knew her eyes looked bad but surgery is so severe. So here we are, getting up in four hours to drive into New Orleans for surgery. I obviously cannot sleep. I want this to be the last surgery. I want it to end here. But I know she will likely need another one as her eyes mature. I read that it is best to have it all done before age nine. After that the brain has a harder time adjusting. I do not want this as just a cosmetic fix but for her vision to be the best it can be. I will not pursue surgery without her consent after it no longer helps her to see better. I do not feel like it would be fair. Please pray for our baby girl's comfort. She will be four this summer and start school in the fall. I hope this will be the last surgery. And, as always, I pray for the advances in technology that could render repeated surgeries obsolete. I also pray for your sweet littles who wear glasses. I will try to update after we are settled at home tomorrow evening.
