here kaylee is getting ready to head off for her accomodative estropia (strabismus) surgery. basically they cut the inner eye muscle and tightened it and then resewed it back together. she was so brave. i was the one crying when they wheeled her off. her surgery was on monday the 23rd of june. it took about 45 minutes. we got to go back to the hotel after she woke up from the anestesia, which took a little longer than i expected. i was very anxious to get back there with her. she couldn't open her eyes, and they were really puffy and swollen. she was in a little pain, but was so tired she slept most of the rest of the day.
here she is 2 days later, she still has one eye that won't open, but she is feeling much better. as of right now, it looks like the surgery was a success, and she will be out of glasses. even before surgery, she actually had 20/20 vision. there was just a problem with the brain telling the eye to turn off basically. so, the surgery was to try and straighten out the eye. we go back in 6 weeks. it's hard to tell yet, because she can barely open her eyes. but the dr. thinks it looks great! yeah! we are hoping for no glasses! you can't tell from the picture, but her poor little eyes are really red!
