Timmy went yesterday and had his very first fitting for his left prosthetic eye. We have been talking to Timmy about this very special day for quite a while. I (mom) wanted Timmy to have nice pretty green eyes. But every time I would speak to Timmy about possibly one day getting green eyes, he would protest. So one day I asked him what color of eyes he wanted? I started naming off colors. Brown? No response from Timmy. Green? A definate disapproval by his vocalizing his disagreement. Hazel? No response. Blue? Timmy started laughing hysterically. This his Timmy's way of telling us YES. So blue eyes it is.
You can't tell much about his new blue eye in this picture because the eyelids are still pretty swollen from Friday's surgery and Mr. Boyd from Carolina Eye Prosthetics Placing and Removing the eye to get the perfect fit. Timmy also may need surgery in the future to shorten the muscle in his left eye lig so that his eye can be more open.
This is the very first picture that we have of Timmy with such a broad smile. This picture itself speaks a 1,000 words!!!!!
Isn't he just the cutest here????
