We saw Dr. Brodsky for a follow up visit today. He is pleased with how the patching is going for Maia's eyes. Enough so that he feels ready to schedule surgery to realign two muscles in each eye. The success rate is 70%. Although I would like it to be higher, we have an eye doctor who is familiar with kids who have SB. Apparently, there are special considerations related to how the muscles are moved (kids with SB require less movement than others). So, I'm thankful that God brought us to someone who does this type of surgery and feels comfortable with it. It will be an outpatient procedure on March 23. We may have to do some intermittent patching after surgery, not sure yet.
