Here we go again...

In July of '09, Caleb was diagnosed with intermittent exotropia.  His eyes would drift out at a mild angle...small enough that we were the only ones who usually noticed it.  We did several months of patching and were able to avoid surgery.

Lately, we have been noticing that it has been getting worse.  So, on Monday we saw the doctor.  And, thankfully he could see what we see.  We are now back to patching for the next two months...hoping to avoid surgery and correct his vision.  Last night, when he took his patch off before bed, he told me he could see "two of everything."  He told me I had three eyes.  It's so hard to not be able to do anything to help him.

Please pray that this patching does what we are hoping.  Pray also for his little heart.  He is now so much more aware of what people think of him, and he is more fearful of seeing people while wearing his patch.  We have had many good conversations already about it.  :-)

Would he think it was cooler if it was a pirate patch? Like color it or put a felt pirate patch over it? Tell him that I think he looks really cool. :)
