Just got back from the hospital with Espen. He had a checkup after his operation - and they confirmed what we were afraid of. His eyes are the same/slightly worse than they were before the operation. He is seeing double to the same degree as before, and his left eye is wandering a bit more than before. They still don't know what is causing this and it seems like his brain is pulling the muscles out of whack no matter what they do. I mentioned today that we were going to the states this summer, and the orthoptist thought we should get a second opinion there, something we were thinking about doing regardless. The opthamology department at the hospital here is the biggest and best in Norway, but they admit that they don't understand what's going on. Espen is nervous now, though, because he - understandably - doesn't want to spend his summer vacation at the hospital.

We have a new appointment at the hospital on May 8th, and several doctors will be examining Espen. Hopefully they can give a referral to UC Davis Medical so we don't have to pay for any appointments there. We'll see what happens, though.

Poor Espen - what is going on with him??
