Just a quick update on the Braidster: We FINALLY got his bloodwork done this afternoon. Still not easy - the phlebotomist fished in one arm before moving to the next arm to check those veins. She didn't prick that arm, instead moving to his hand and got what she needed that way. Phew! That's over (for now...). We should hear something tomorrow.
The ophthalmologist appointment went as expected: he is the perfect candidate for surgery. His strabismus has actually gotten better, his muscles are stronger now, but still not where they should be. His vision is completely fine, ironically. So we are on the books for a February 5th, one-and-one-half hour surgery. How bizarre it is done so quick and we're all set.
