Although it’s not always obvious in photographs, The Boy has quite a significant divergent squint. In layman’s terms…his eyes wander outwards and he can’t control it.

IMG_7138_edited-1Today he had surgery to correct the squint, and despite having to wait 5 hours in the hospital before going down to theatre, he has been a little hero.  He played nicely with the toys, watched a bit of a movie, and gave his daddy a run for his money at Angry Birds, all without complaining once about being hungry, thirsty or bored.

We finally got him home late afternoon, at which point he curled up on the sofa to snooze, wearing his sunglasses like a complete dude!

He’s now tucked up in bed and we’re hoping a good nights sleep will put him back on form tomorrow.  We’ve got a quiet day at home together just in case.

Either way, I’m so relieved he came through this again with flying colours, and hopeful that the surgery is a success.  Time will tell…fingers crossed.
