However, several years ago a small "hole" was discovered in his retina. We were told then that the "hole" was the result of some sort of trauma. The good news was that the hole was very, very small and had healed nicely, all on it's own.
Today we were told that the "tear" is larger, has underlying fluid around it, and could cause major damage to Steven's sight if left untreated.
So Steven had a rather unexpected laser surgery to that eye this afternoon to prevent further damage to the retina.
We were reassured once again that this is not disease related, but thankfully it is simply a bad-luck consequence from trauma to the head.
Trauma that we don't remember happening.
Steven believes that the trauma might be soccer related.
I believe the trauma is brother related!
Brothers...you have to love them!
