Admitted and then not

After seeing the Opthalmological Paediatrician (that's easy for me to say!) at Calderdale Royal I was admitted into hospital and put on different medication. After a while day on the new meds I have improved greatly showing that I must have been in quite a bit of discomfort for the past few months.

I am now spending more awake time playing and exploring though I'm not impressed when my meds are being administered!

As a result of the improvement I was allowed home for the weekend though I need to return on Monday evening so I'm available for my pre-op checks. My first operation is on Tuesday 8th March 2011.


  1. Great to hear he's doing better Mark. What is involved in the operation? I know it didn't go ahead with the cold, which is a bummer.

  2. First few operations are to reduce the pressue on a valve in the eye by cutting away at a flap of skin to see if the valve starts working or not. After more attempts they'll then try and replace his valves.
