I hate this post.
I guess I’ve been putting it off because I don’t want to admit that it’s real.
But it’s real all right.
See Moxie’s left eye there?
It’s slowly been moving in. The eye has been turning in. Little by little.
Well, we finally went in to get it looked at. The doctor said that it’s an issue with her eye muscle – her brain isn’t training it to do what it needs to do or something like that. Surgery is what is recommended, and recommended soon, before it gets worse.
Her vision is not affected. In fact, they were shocked at how perfect her vision is – even with her eyes dilated, she had perfect vision.
Anyway. Yeah, so. She is supposed to go back in 2 weeks and have it all assessed one last time before surgery. The surgery part of it scares the crap out of us because they actually knock her out for it.
I need to look at more cute pictures of her while I write about this stuff. So here is one more.
They said that once the surgery is performed, and her eye muscles are basically cut and reattached, her eye will not move in – but sometimes they have to do the surgery more than once to get it right.
NOT LIKE IT HELPS TO HEAR THAT, RIGHT?!
“Oh, sorry y’all, we’ll just need to put Moxie under again to try and get it right this time!”
But they can also get it right the first time. We’re just going to have to hope and pray that they do.
And yeah, I”m sighing again.
This is a sigh-full post.
I need all these cute photos to get me over my sighs.
