Beck's Tear Duct Surgery






Oh my goodness! Is it over? Is it gone?


My mother-in-law, Bless her big giant heart, came and picked me and my kiddos up at 5:30 AM and we took off to Spokane for Beck's eye surgery. It's like tubes in the ears except they put them in the corners of his eyes. He is such a trooper and we were actually out of there and headed home by 9:30 this morning. It broke my heart when they took him back and I had to stop at the door and he was saying, "no, mommy no bye bye!" Then about 40 minutes later I can hear him screaming in the back room and they came and got me. They put him out with some gas and then take the gas away and he wakes right up! I hurried back there and rocked him for about 20 minutes, then we got dressed and headed home after some simple instructions; no showering, eye drop prescription, and yes the bloody nose and eyes are normal and will go away in the next day or two. The IV bugged him the most and then when they finally took that out the bloody nose was quite annoying to him. He hates when his nose is runny, so you can imagine how he feels with blood coming out of it. Poor guy! He was much happier after Grandma Ann started his movie in the car on the way home and after he got an ice cream cone for breakfast. After he had calmed down and we were headed out he kept asking for his cousin Alizah and he wanted to go and see her, that's who he's talking to on the phone. (My cell phone that falls into 2 pieces if you are not careful, but somehow still works! Even if you can't see the screen. I just have to be really careful in the number I am dialing and if I don't have the number memorized, then I can't call, so that may be why I haven't called most people in a few days!) My poor baby boy, everyone was so nice there, but I just hope that he never has to go through any of this again. Although we do have to go back in 2 weeks for an evaluation.

What a brave little boy. Hopefully he'll never have to go through it again. I know when I go to work and they take their little ones to surgery for tubes or tonsilectomy's most mommy's start crying and it takes so much for me not to cry with them. Glad it's over. Sayda

Wow! Beck is a trooper to go through all that. I think eye surgery would be the worst. Glad it is all over and hope it is all better forever!
