We finally know what's up with Matthew's gooey right eye. Keep in mind that it has drained on and off for over a year now; it started back while he was in the NICU. It would always come and go usually as the weather changed.
Over the last two weeks, it has gotten worse than it's ever been. James and Matthew went to see Dr. Metz (his pediatric opthamologist) yesterday. Dr. Metz confirmed what several other people had mentioned to us: Matthew either has a blocked or narrow tear duct. They won't be able to tell which one until they do the surgery on the 16th. It's not a major surgery or anything, just outpatient, but pray for my little Bear anyway. He's still going to be poked, annoyed, and under anesthesia. If a rose by any other name is still a rose, then surgery is still surgery.
It probably wouldn't hurt to pray for my nerves while your at it.
