Eye Update

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.
And here is my sweet boy now.  My boy who can see!  I think it looks pretty good!  There are still a few stitches left to dissolve on his outer lids (the internal stitches are permanent).  I think he still looks like himself- just a more rested, less stoned version :-)  Oh- and handsome, too!  Yep, I think I could stare at those chocolate brown eyes for the rest of my life.  *sigh*
