Eye Duct Surgery - We Have Liftoff!

We FINALLY went through with the eye duct surgery this morning - and it was a success. Hooray! 

For those of you who have been following the story closely, K. has had a blocked tear duct and since he turned one, we had tried numerous attempts to have the procedure to open and irrigate it.  The surgery has been rescheduled THREE TIMES!  

First it got postponed because he was sick in April.  Then it got postponed in May because after reading K.'s medical history the anesthesiologist said she wasn't comfortable putting him under with his bad allergies.  We had to go to an allergist and figure out what the problem was.  Then, the third time we attempted to have the surgery (two weeks ago), about 10 minutes before he was scheduled to go under, the electricity went out and they were told the power grid would be down for at least 3 hours!  I didn't want to wait around with a hungry kid, so we rescheduled for today.

So finally, finally, we got it done.  Both mama and baby are happy about that -- I am quite convinced of it.  He's now sleeping peacefully in his bed upstairs and I think I may go take a nap too.  Nighty night.

Yay! You will *love* not having to wipe that goop out of his eye every ten seconds. At least I did with G...

Hooray, so glad it went well.
