A week ago (2/6) I convinced Geoff that he needed to go to Alex's follow up appointment to see Dr. Moshfeghi. The Dr's always like Geoff & I usually feel like I'm the rambling idiot in the corner who gets a pat on the head because I talk too much. So my point of taking Geoff was so that Geoff could ask for Matterhorn clearance for this boy who is not understanding why the 3 of us are not taking off for our annual "just the 3 of us" trek to see Harold at Disneyland. Geoff reluctantly agreed as normally he leaves medical stuff like follow up appoints soley to my calendar... lucky me. I felt like we needed to bring in the big guns just in case.
We weren't expecting anything from the appointment other than maybe clearance. But immediately when Dr. Moshfeghi shined his light in & said "we have another tear" my heart sank. Excuse my language but WTF???? I just couldn't believe it. Fast forward to Monday, Alex had another retinal reattachment surgery. The good news/bad news about it was that this detachement was from scar tissue that built up & tore his retina. Good news because it wasn't something that Alex did this time but bad news because it can happen again. Now we're back on 2 weeks of trying to keep him calm. He's sleeping quite a bit although today he was fully of spunk & pushed his limits.
Today though being Valentines Day it reminded me that I hadn't taken Alex's Valentines pic that I take every year. My boy was so cute & cooperative but note the glare in the pic, I need to learn how to shoot something with glasses on & avoid the glare. But most importantly I'm happy I picked up my camera today, that made my whole day.
