So Lauren just completed her ninth surgery on April 3, 2012. It was her first eye surgery where the doctor (dr. patel) removed or reduced the two dermoid cysts she has had on her left eye since birth. The cysts have not caused any vision problems, however they were starting to irritate her eye due to some fine hairs that were growing out of them. Yes, that is right, hairs. We were told when she was born that the tissue on these cysts vary and that they could be tissue from different areas. They did tell us that this might happen, and at her last eye appointment it was noted. She has done great, she told us that her left ear now has a friend because her left eye has had surgery now. It is very swollen and red and the doctor says it can take up to a month for the redness to go away. Hopefully we are done, or done at least for a while. Thanks for everyone's love and support.
