MY POOR BELLA*BOO

bella has always had sinus problems and lately her eye has been really gunked up and i blew it off as that. we had a slight change in our weather last week and everyone has been complaining of sinus problems. well monday when i got home for work, i noticed this pink skin hanging on her eyeball {insert gag and freak out on my part} after having the pediatrician paged, i explained to him what was going on and he advised that she needed to come in yesterday morning. so after running from one doctor to another doctor and then being referred to now a third doctor that only comes into town once a month, i found out that bella has a papalloma on her eye. and it has to be surgically removed.
{sniff sniff}

i won't know more until we see the lid specialist (umm hello...doctors specialize on the eye lid only???) on the 12th of next month.

poor lil thing. the only good thing about it is, that it doesn't hurt or bother her at all which is a saving grace for me.

has this happened to anyone else's kiddos???

my poor bella boo!

Yikers! Poor thing. I read that it is sometimes caused by UV exposure or basically the sun. Get that little one to wear her sunglasses.

oh the poor child! at least it's not hurting her. and we never expect these weird things to happen, you know? i've heard of blepharoplasty before, but i think that is more cosmetic, like to fix sagging eyelids. not sure if it applies to any eyelid surgery.

Sorry about Bella. I'm sure everything will be fine. Keep us posted.
