It's been a little over a month since Miles had his first eye surgery and about 2 1/2 weeks since his second one. We are SO pleased with how his eyes are healing. I was terrified of having this done, but two eye doctors told us he could have permanent vision loss as a result from how droopy his lids were. I was afraid that he would come out looking like Micky Roarke or some other plastic surgery disaster. I was afraid that he wouldn't look like my same little sleepy eyed boy. But I also didn't want him to go blind or have further difficulty with his eyes. This is just a little update on how our little man is doing.
Here he is before the surgery- with no crease in his lid at all. He had to tilt his head back to see most things out from under his lids. I promise, we did not allow him to smoke a doobie before we took this picture.
Here he is mid way through the healing process. He's messing with me in this picture so it is a little extreme, but it's the only one I took of him mid way through. But seriously- it was a pretty gruesome looking post surgical site.
