Timmy had eye surgery today with Dr. Richard, so that Dr. Richard could get a better look in Timmy's eye socket to see exactly why we haven't been able to reinsert Timmy prosthetic eye.
Well of course this being Timmy. His body had created scar tissue in the eye socket. Why? Not sure being that when the prosthetic mold for his eye was made on Jan. 22nd Dr. Richard did absolutely nothing, but remove a conformer that was in his left eye and replace it with a fresh one until our visit with the occularist on Manday Jan. 25th.
Thankfully Dr. Richard was able to clean away the scar tissue, replace the eye and suture it shut with dissolvable surures, whic should dissolve within 2 weeks. But then again Mr. Timmy is also Mr. Hands. And he LOVES to self stimulate and rub his face/eyes. So we shall see just how long the sutures stay in place. Hopefully the full 2 weeks. This way Timmy;'s eye socket will have a chance to conform to the shape of his prosthetic eye and we won't have so much trouble reinserting the eye if it should happen to come out again.
Aside for a little bloody drainage. Timmy came through surgery well. And we were able to keep his blood glucose levels well managed. Of course if Timmy heard me say that, he would surely throw a wrench into the mix next time for sure! Praying there isn't a next time too soon into the future.
