Eye Surgery #2....and hopefully no more!

Emmitt had his eye surgery last Friday. Last August he had a very minor surgery to open a blocked tear duct. Well, it didn't work. It closed up again. So this time they had to put an actual tube in his duct to keep it open. It has to stay in for 3 months. It was a little more extensive surgery this time, 20 minutes, compared to 5 last time. Everything went so smooth though. I could feel all those prayers being said for us. We thank God it went so well, and continue to pray that it works this time. Here's some pictures from before his surgery. He looked too darn cute in his little hospital gown =)

Nurse Ruby had to get his pulse/ox (sp?) and he wasn't wantin nothin to do wit dat!!! =)

Tryin to squirm away - he's not a big fan of doctors anymore :)
