Update on Thomas!

I wanted to pop in with a quick update on Thomas! Yesterday our little man had a very successful strabismus surgery. We were home by lunch and our loopy Thomas took a very long nap and woke up back to himself – running around, inhaling packets of food and searching the house for his sissy. His eyes are still very bloodshot but we can already see a tremendous improvement in his alignment. Also, a surprise to us, our doctor re-inserted his contacts at the conclusion of surgery so Thomas can see! We were really worried about him not being able to wear his contacts during recovery but our doctor felt confident that Thomas would do okay with them in.

Also, I mentioned how worried I was about how Thomas would do missing breakfast since he wakes up hangry and to my surprise he did terrific. He was so distracted at the hospital with all the lights, noises, machines, doctors, nurses and patients that he didn’t even notice he missed his favorite meal. Also, the night before his surgery Caroline helped us pack a bag of all their favorite toys so he could have them at the hospital. It was so sweet watching her meticulously pick out the things they love to play with most — the drill, a cell phone, stuffed animals, her old purple paci and more.

We are so grateful for a 4th successful surgery for Thomas and for all of the prayers! I cannot believe that between Thomas and Caroline we have FIVE infant hospital gowns in our collection. Crazy. But we are beyond thankful with how far we’ve come in this journey with Thomas and are excited for the future. Off to his surgery follow up appointment this morning…
