Monday Morning Injury Update.....

He looks injured doesn't he? lol! This is Kade after his latest eye appointment - these are the glasses you wear after cataract surgery - of course he chose to wear them least he feels fine! Crazy kid!!

He had an appointment to see a cataract surgeon this morning. We got there at 7:55 a.m. (his appointment was at 8:00 a.m.) - we left at 10:38 a.m.!! And it was SO COLD in there! And I mistakenly thought we would only be there for a few minutes so we hadn't had breakfast!

However, Kade LOVED the surgeon - he hasn't been as crazy about the retina surgeon, so that was a relief. If you ever need a cataract surgeon - go see Dr. Mitchell at Maynor & Mitchell. Anyway, they did schedule Kade for surgery on August 18th. The impact of the pellet caused a cataract and the cataract has made it impossible for the specialists to see the damage to his retina. Therefore, the cataract has to come off in order to move forward with repairing the retina.

It was kind of funny while we waited for them to call him back - you could tell all of those little old gray haired folks were looking at him thinking, "why are YOU here??" lol. Not many eleven year olds have to worry about cataract surgery! But that's MY BOY!! haha.

Trenton told me this morning that he had a dream about Kade. I ask him if it was about Kade's eye. I figured it was because Blake and Trenton came back from Disney with pellet guns. I informed them they were not allowed to shoot at each other due to what happen to Kade. Trenton said "his eyes were fine in the dream but he had a broke noise" lol
