Eye appointment with Arizona Pediatric Eye Specialists

As I said in an earlier post, Sakura had an appointment with a Pediatric Eye Specialist.  For as long as I can remember Sakura has had her eyelashes turn inward - I always thought it was due to her "chubby" baby cheeks, and once they were gone the problem would resolve....but it didn't.  We talked to our pediatrician about it, and she suggested that we have it checked (just incase) ... I don't really know what I expected, but I didn't expect the Dx - which is surgery.  Sakura is scheduled for surgery 4 September to fix this due to having MANY scratches on her eyes from rubbing and/or the eyelashes themselves.

Waiting in the lobby for her turn with the Doctor, watching Lion King
SUCH a big girl - Sakura does unbelievably well when it comes to any kind of medical appointment and this was no exception - she makes us SO proud of her, even the Dr. said that she has kids twice her age that aren't as well behaved~
The worst part - dilating her eyes, we had to wait around and then they rechecked her, all she did was ask me repeatedly to take that stuff out of her eyes.  Poor Kiddo!
Little Miss Hollywood --- She did NOT like these not so fashionable sunglasses, but I forgot hers in the car!
Afterwards we went to lunch at a great Japanese place
I wanted to take a few pictures .... UMMMMM I forgot she was suppose to have her sunglasses on!  DUH!
Poor kid - dilated eyes trying to smile ... Sorry Sakura!
MUCH better!
THIS girl makes me the proudest Mommy that ever walked the planet!
