Ben the Bat boy

Ben has a lazy left eye that doesn't want to tell his brain that it can actually be of some use. We have to patch his eye a couple of hours a day and on the weekends his Dr. gave us some eyedrops that dilate his right eye so that he will rely on his left eye.

We put the eyedrops in on Sunday afternoon and he quickly lost the ability to see. I thought it would only last a couple of hours, but when he woke up this morning, his right eye was still dilated. I called the Dr. and was told that it can last up to a day and a half.

Ben has become a night vision expert. He spends his day in the dark playing with his toys or watching a show. He briefly went outside to ride his bike but came in to tell me that he was seeing all kinds of crazy colors. I kind of wanted to film it because it reminded me of that dad who filmed his son after the dentist appt. - all doped up. Ben was looking behind him running in circles, like a dog chasing his tail, being followed by the color red. That darned red.

Hopefully it will be working tomorrow, otherwise it is another trip to the doctor.
