A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Fashion Statement

BB is sporting a new look.

His left eyelid has always been droopy.
We have been watching it and checking his eyes since birth.
His vision appears to be fine.
The concern is that his eyelid could start to interfere with his vision.

When BB is really tired, the eyelid is more pronounced.
The doctor suggested patching his right eye to force the use of his left.
If we start seeing him tilt his head up to see,
we can assume that the eyelid is getting in the way.

His next appointment is with the surgeon who will eventually tuck the eyelid up.
Until then we continue to monitor.
After the patch is put on, he forgets it is even there (until time to take it off)!
