Dr. Bernstein

I'm sorry!  Life is over whelming and I rarely make it downstairs to blog anymore.  I've been blogging from my phone, but the problem is, there has been so much to tell, it was just too crazy to type it out all on my phone.

So.....Having seen Dr. Dries, we set up an appointment with Dr. Bernstein.  We drove back up to the Moran Eye Center on Friday.  Tori just takes it all in stride.
 Well....then she was poked and prodded.  Her pressures were good, and she was just a little sore.
 We finally got to see Dr. Bernstein and he advised us that her Scleral Buckle was exposed and there were a few options.  He said that this doesn't happen very often, so he was surprised it had with her.  However I figure if it's going to happen to anyone it's going to be Tori.  The options 1) to leave it alone.  Really not an option.  2) try and stitch it up which doesn't really work. and 3) Take out the buckle and stitch it up then.  Sigh....stock up another surgery for Tori.
 We had to have a close up picture of the problem area. So she went and put her cute face in another contraption and they took a close picture.
They letme take a picture of the picture, so this is what it looked like.  She basically had a tear in her eye??  It might have been the muscles or connective tissue but, she had a hole.
She was scheduled for surgery a week later.
