It's Back

Last week was rough for Trace.  He was fighting a cough, runny nose and woke up with a very swollen eye.  He's still fighting the runny nose and cough, but it takes him a little longer than most to recover from a simple cold.  The swollen eye is the same one he just had surgery on in March to remove three chalazions.  A chalazion is a cyst in the eyelid caused by inflammation of a blocked gland.  I took him to his ophthalmologist who confirmed it's another chalazion.  Ahhh!!!  We're trying the eye drops, again, in hopes they will get rid of it this time.  Last time we did drops and other measures for about three months before we finally had to resort to surgical removal.  I don't want to put him through another surgery, even if it's just to remove a chalazion.  Even a simple procedure is complicated for mito kiddos.  Trace has to have much more anesthetic than other children - comes with the mito.  He also takes longer to come out of anesthesia, which is not exactly comforting.  Please pray it goes away on it's own.  Even though it looks terrible, my baby is still smiling!!  I love him so much!
