What I Learned When My Kid Had Surgery

When a suspicious lump started growing on my daughter’s eyelid, we immediately consulted Dr. Google.  In our professional expertise, we diagnosed her with “probably just a stye or something” and treated it like the internet told us to: with hot packs and gentle eyelid cleaning.  Months later, it had only gotten bigger.  And let me […]
