Day 43 - Eye Doctor

My mom came up to help shuttle the kids while I took Elise to the eye doctor today. She has a bump under her left eyelid that I discovered about a week ago, and the pediatrician quickly sent us to a specialist. So, today we met with a pediatric opthamologist to have it looked at.

The bump is called a dermal cyst. It's about the size of a pea and it moves around. It really doesn't bother her and thank goodness the doctor said it hasn't impaired her vision (yet).

So, at this point they are monitoring it to check it's rate of growth. Probably by summer we are looking at surgery to have it removed.

In other news, we did have a beautiful day again. Mom and I took the kids to the park and had another round of ice cream. Then the kids had a squirt gun fight and begged to put on their swimsuits (I didn't let them). It's funny how the temperature went up 40 degrees since morning!
