So, they have to operate on Johnny’s eye immediately? Give me a break!
There are so many things that have to be prepared for an eye removal that it takes days, if not weeks, before they would do the surgery.
And, seriously folks, how many people when just told their son has cancer do they yell back at the doctor, "My son doesn’t have cancer."? Sami! You’ve just been told by four, count ’em, FOUR doctors, that he does.
But then again, I’m certain that more testing would be required before they went so far as to decide on enucleantion. As I mentioned before, my nephew had his eye removed (not from cancer but a detached retina) when he was four, so I was there for the whole process. It took about two months from the diagnosis until the actual removal.
It will be interesting to see how soon he gets his prosthesis too. That is also a very long process, about six months IIRC, although that was several years ago and it may be faster now.
was one of the most unreallistic reactions from a parent imaginable. When will Sami ever learn that scrunching up her face and yelling does not help most situations, especially this one. I don’t like this story line at all — it needs a Christmas miracle.
