Jimmy's upcoming surgery
Just wanted to let everyone know that we went ahead and scheduled Jimmy's little outpatient surgery for Dec. 2nd. They're just going to pop that little cyst out of his eyelid and give him a couple of stitches. She said it's very simple, but she likes to go slowly and take her time so it may take an hour or two. He will have to go under anesthesia, again. (Yes, for those of you keeping count, this is his 3rd time before age 3! I called and talked to his pediatrician about this. He says it's really not an issue as long as we're comfortable with who's doing it and feel it's necessary.) It should be a very different experience though - watching an almost 3 year old wake up than watching a 4 month old and an 8 month old. She tried to reassure me that there will be minimum scarring - I stopped and explained that hers is one of several and we're OK with scars. Anyway, here we go again - but on a MUCH smaller scale!
