Well I was trying to hold off from posting about the eye doctor because Chris wanted to do it but since we had a power outage last night I won’t keep you all in suspense any longer. The Doctor says Tatum need to have surgery to fix her crossed eyes. She sees well tracks fine and her eyes are not lazy, just crossed. The surgery is going to take place sometime before she turns one. They are going to monitor her once a month for the next 4-6 months to make measurements so they do not over correct.

Chris is comparing the severity of this procedure to ear tubes…I though it was the end of the word when Emma got tubes in her ears, HA little did I know. As long as everything goes well with the cath and angioplasty on Wed. the cardiologist feels that the local anesthesia for the eye surgery should be fine.

We have a busy weekend ahead of us so I do not have time to dwell. We are going to Christine and Joel’s wedding on Sat. evening, gosh I am looking forward to that, no kids, and Emma is graduating into the head start program from the 2 year old class on Sat. afternoon. Oh yeah dance class in the morning, think I’ll be busy?????
We are breaking Autumn in this weekend she is babysitting Tatum, I hope not for the first and last time ;)

Let the cath countdown begin 4 day to go.

Tatum is a trooper and she is getting SO big, she'll be just fine. Being busy is a good thing. I hope you have a great time at the wedding and I'll see you on Saturday.

All I have to say is that I hope Tatum gives Autumn hell! No totally kidding. She has dealt with Daven at his worst, so I know she will do an awesome job with that precious Tatum! Have a great night!

Hugs to Tate... she'll be fine! I always read of the eye exams for the WS kids. I'm pretty sure Brady might need one too.

Sounds like you're going to have a helluva weekend!! Have fun!
Love -K

All I'm saying is I will have Aspen and my Mom on speed dial for my babysitting adventure. Kids do have a way of breaking me in, but I'm sure it won't be anything I can't handle. I'm actually looking forward to it. I haven't seen you guys in forever!

I can't believe she is going to have to have another procedure/surgery! Poor girl!! Give her a hug and kiss from us! I would love to see the girls.
I hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Surgery seems to big a big part of out children's lives, but they are resilent and bounce back quickly. Our kids are tough. Just keep telling yourself she'll be fine. That's what I do? It works sometimes ;)

I know everything will be okay! Don't be so sad, Tatum is a very strong little girl! I cross my fingers for you!
I hope you had a nice weekend!
Love and big hugs to Tate!!!
