Round 4


This morning Finn had his fourth laser treatment. I've wondered if he would get to a point where just seeing the hospital or the doctor would traumatize him. We reached that point today. The minute we walked into the laser treatment room, he started crying. Talk about breaking my heart! Only 8 more rounds to go, little guy (or thereabouts).

Luckily, it doesn't seem to hurt him at all - he's just so mad that he's being pinned down and that his eyes are being covered with gauze. As soon as it is done - less than a minute - he calms right down and seems his usual happy self for the rest of the day. Here's a picture of him a few hours after the treatment. It looks so horrible. You should see the looks I get out in public! I can only imagine what people must think happened - after all it does look like someone took a cigarette and burned his poor little face. Good thing he's such an adorable, happy little guy!

He's a cutie! I love those big blue eyes! I hope the next 8 rounds go well for him.

Makes me hate going to the doctor too! So glad he's happy afterwards though and I'm sure he'll appreciate it when he's older :)

He's such a trooper, and his parents too. How soon after do the marks fade?

He is a trooper! The marks usually take about 10-14 days to fade.
