This morning, three days after Penny’s surgery, we went in to see the ophthalmologist so see how she is healing. He told us it is heart breaking to have to perform surgery on someone so little, with her eyeballs so soft. But after examining her eye, he said it’s heart lifting to see her looking around and following his light. He is as pleased with her progress as I am, and indicates that it will get even better once her left eye is done as well.
I don’t wish her to have to go through the surgery again, but after seeing how she handled the first one I know she’ll be fine. And I am excited about how much better her life will be when she’s able to see.
In the meantime, I am looking into glasses for her, since the doctor said we’d get her in glasses in about a month. I don’t imagine many places carry frames for babies as young as her, so I’d like to find out now where we can get them, and if necessary order them so they’re in once we get a prescription.
