One Eyed Willie

Poor Sarah! She was born with blocked tear ducts in both eyes. Around 2 weeks old the eye on her right opened on it's own. We keep rubbing and cleaning as much as we can and hope that the left eye will open soon. I guess around 1 year if it has opened the doctor can go in and open things up sugically but hopefully that wont be necessary. Have any of your kids had this?


Don't let Sarah fool you, she gets the princess treatment too.

Charlotte has one eye with a clogged duct too. I hate it. Don't you love that kids think bandaids fix everything. David has a cold and wants bandaids everywhere. I guess he must be achy, poor thing. Oh your girls are so cute.

Jack has a blocked tear duct...it's almost cleared up...I'm hoping to avoid the surgery option as well. I think him crying a little more clears out the bacteria:) So, hope for more tears?

Jack has a blocked tear duct as well...it's almost cleared up on its own. We're hoping to avoid the surgery option and I think him crying a little bit more now (before naps and whatnot) has helped to clear out the bacteria. So, maybe hope for more tears?:)

Poor gal. Ruby had the same thing when she was born but only in one eye. We thought it healed on its own but lately her eye is constantly tearing up. Its so sad.
Hey thanks for the phone call. I am sorry I haven't called you back. My home phone doesn't do long distance and the # you called was my cell and I never use it, like ever. And I left the charger for it at the hospital when I was there so I only charge it when I get in the car. I appreciate you thinking of us. We are well as can be. Love ya girly, hopefully one of these times we can get together when your here.
