River Update
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

River's surgery went well (the doctor said it went "perfectly"). The pressure in the left eye wasn't as low as they would have liked, so they operated on it again, as well as working on the right eye. Our kid is currently snoozing in the swing, sporting not one but two eyepatches. No pirate this time -- it's more of a Human Fly look. Poor guy can't see a thing, so we're cuddling him and singing to him and talking to him, but it's really heartbreaking. He gets the patches off tomorrow.

The doctor says his "gut instinct" is that River is going to need multiple surgeries, but that he'll have a better idea over the next weeks and months. Not what we wanted to hear -- we wanted to hear, "He'll be good for years!" -- but we'll do whatever we must to take care of him, of course.

Thanks to all who sent good wishes and hopeful thoughts.
