Nolan had eye surgery last Friday. The surgeon did exploratory surgery to try and unblock Nolan's tear ducts. Turns out that Nolan doesn't have tear ducts! The surgeon also removed a few eyelashes that were growing inward.
Nolan was my brave boy. He didn't even need Versed to calm him before they took him back. The surgery was quick and he was home within a few hours.
Today is his post-op visit. Good thing since this morning Nolan woke up with a red, puffy right eye. It appears that his tear duct is getting infected. You wouldn't know it though-- Nolan is up and running around and keeps asking if I will take him to school.
As a consolation prize Nolan is watching Pokemon and writing down all the names of the characters.
