Double double

Ahhh, the neverending saga of Espen's eyes...Today Espen had an appointment with the surgeon who did his the last 2 (or was it 3) surgeries on his eyes. As I mentioned a while ago, Espen has started seeing double again, so we're making the rounds of the hospital again, trying to figure out what's going on. I was at a seminar this afternoon, so Gaute took Espen to the doctors. He didn't go into the details of what the surgeon said, but the gist of it is that she's thinking she'd like to operate again. According to Gaute, everything she explained to him made a lot of sense. She was not the one who did the first operation (or that is to say, she was not the one who decided what kind of operation it should be), and she thinks that they made the wrong decision then, and that that is why things aren't going like they should. So, we'll see what happens, but he's going back in in the middle of April for another consultation and to have some pictures taken of his eyes. I talked to Espen this evening, and he is positive to another operation, because he really thinks it's pretty annoying the way it is right now - which I can definitely understand. I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, here are some pics of the big guy, fresh from football practice:

And one that Johan took of me...

My god - Espen looks even taller than when I was there last Fall - amazing. I hope all goes well - it must be so annoying to see double. Is that the teacher stance??
