Just a quick update on benjamin’s eyes. It looks like he will be having muscle surgery on both eyes in October. I have not found a very good web page describing his surgery, if I find one, I will update this post. Here is WebMD’s version of his condition: Muscle Surgery
The basics are that he will get several of his muscles that move his eyes cut and repositioned. It is outpatient, with a general anesthesia. 80% success nationally, but over 90% up at the Moran Eye Center. If unsuccessful then a second surgery is needed.
Patched eyes for a day or two, red eyes for a month and full recovery at 6 weeks. He is excited about this as he thinks he will be a much better devil for Halloween with the red eyes.
This will help him keep his head straight, fix his left eye when he looks sharp to the right, and stop seeing double characters when he reads. (All of which we learned he had only in the last few months.)
More news as we get it.
