full anesthesia, my boy. tomorrow. it's an eye operation, and we have been debating back and forth what to do.
he has a lazy eye and is losing sight on it. it was always "sliding" out a bit when he was tired, but the last 4-6 month it is almost constant. doctors are telling us it cannot be adjusted with patches and glasses, but we were very reluctant regarding an operation. but lately he has complained a lot. he is always closing or covering one eye, as he cannot focus and it bothers him. he says his eye is "rolling around", because he can still see on it and his eyes are sending two different images to the brain. eventually his brain will shot down on the lazy eye.
so here we go. it's scary and it's awful, but if everything goes according to plan, we will be home tomorrow afternoon. and hopefully he will no longer have to deal with this.
