The Dr had warned us over and over not to let her rub her eye or nose and Lana was doing great at that. But she was in the wading pool, and I think she splashed it and rubbed it instinctively because it was wet.I hadn't realised it was quite that delicate.
So we're sitting back hoping it stays in as long as possible. It was supposed to be in for 3-4 months, then they'd remove it. It hasn't even lasted a week yet. The Dr said the longer it stays in the better, and he said if it sticks outside, they can tape it to her nose, which sounds awkward. The longer it stays in, the more chance of her tear duct staying open afterwards. So we just want to keep it in as long as we can. I sure don't want to have put her through all that for nothing.
Now if it does come out after Monday, we're no longer insured. Joy joy. We've submitted an application for medicaid so hopefully we can backdate things to cover this period if we're found eligible. They said it can take 45 days to process the application. Sometimes I do miss the NHS. Mind you, on the NHS we had to wait on a waiting list for months and months just to see an eye specialist, so I guess there are pros and cons.
