We had Myron’s one-year update for his eye today. I find it hard to believe that a year has already gone by, and at the same time, I find it hard to believe that it has only been a year.
The news is… okay.
It turns out that his lazy eye is back in full force. It’s not as bad as it was pre-surgery, but the problem is returning in a new way (true lazy eye as opposed to the outright crossed eyes). The good news is that a lazy eye is likely treatable by simply doing patching. We have instructions to do just that for the next six to eight weeks, four+ hours a day.
We had hoped for a clean bill of health, knew it wouldn’t be that, and are satisfied with the progress that has happened anyway. We are, as usual, quite hopeful that all will be well given time. He’s resilient and strong, and his body has responded as it should.
We will probably do a fast for him this coming Fast Sunday; any prayers and other efforts would be greatly appreciated. I’ve always felt that the Lord will heal this particular affliction after we’ve proved our faith.
