Strabismus Surgery

Strabismus Surgery is what i think Emily is going to have to have.. I forget exactly what the doctor said... but when looking it up.. that's what it described..

There are a few different types.. The type that Emily needs (i think) is tightening/strengthing procedure of her eye muscles.. That's what the doctor we have been seeing has described..

It's suppose to be a pretty quick and easy surgery.. though the pictures i've seen have made my eyes sore.. yuck. I'm pretty sure it's just a in/out procedure.. with not having to stay overnight at the hospital at all.. But i'll know exactly what it is and what is involved when we actually meet the new doctor and stuff...

Don't you love googling things/ wikepedia.. I do. Especially when it's something medical I don't completely understand! One of our many needs for internet :-D

Wikipedia is one of my best friends.

Sounds complicated and nasty. Hopefully it goes well.

I think it is so great you are making sure Emily gets the treatment she needs. If she does need strabismus surgery, it is so important she have it done while she is young. I am an ophthalmic technician and have been involved in eye care for the past ten years, so let me know if you have any questions.

I thought of you this week at the S.F. Recreational center. I was in front of a woman who told her children “baby is as big as an apple,” and told her about you!

Good luck for Emily. I really hope everything goes well too.
