Well we have had an extremely busy last couple of days. Today we went to our children's hospital about an hour away. Wysdom first had an eye appointment. His eyes cross and shake, so we have been doing patching for a long time. We switch eyes depending on how his eyes are responding. Normally we patch for about 45 minutes and that pretty much is not fun, because Wysdom can pull it off in a second and he does so. So we went last month to check his eyes, but he would not cooperate so we came home. So this time he still did not want to cooperate and what I mean by that is that he won't open his eyes, and he is actually strong enough to keep them closed.
Needles to say they had to use some equipment to keep his eye lids open. Can I just say that I DID NOT LOVE THIS AND EITHER DID WYSDOM. If you have ever had this done to your child, I am sure you agree with me. It was hard for me to watch. I mean it only took a short time, but I couldn't handle it so well. Shed a few tears, maybe more than a few in the office. Verdict is that we no have to patch his eyes for a total of.....4 HOURS. Ha. I will let you know how that goes. I am going to have to figure out some contraption for his patch. We are trying to get his brain to use both eyes the same amount of time. Right now he uses his right eye and his left eye is weak. When they are balanced the we can go to surgery to try and fix the crossing.
We went to our Cardiologist appointment. We had an echo done at Sick Kid's about a month ago. We also had one done today too. This was a big appointment and I am glad to say that all has stayed the same. This is the best news ever!!! He still has a leak both on the right and left side of his heart and some narrowing on the right that they will watch. However all is okay now, We just have to do a "holter" not sure it that is the correct spelling. The contraption that they wear to monitor their heart beat. Once we do this we are not looking to go back for a YEAR!!!! I can not tell you that I am so relieved.
We still have a sleep study to think about as Wysdom is not sleeping well. So it might be a lung issue, or ENT issue.
I will keep you posted. All in all it was a busy day and Wysdom did his best. He was cried for a good portion of the day, and was happy to come home.
Next stop. Last RSV shot of the season in the morning. Oh boy he is not going to be loving this.
