Last Wednesday, Grace had an ophthalmology appointment with a new doctor. This was our third opinion.
Just a brief recap on our other two opinions. The first eye doctor we have been to was less than informative and gave little hope of improvement. He basically told us nothing. The second eye doctor we saw is affiliated with our state's school for the blind. He was very hopeful and encouraged us to try to get involved with our state's comprehensive home-based intervention program (CHIP), which is basically like vision therapy. After a LONG wait, we were denied admission into CHIP based on that same doctor's recommendations (yes, that's right). We had really given up on finding an eye doctor that we liked, until our pediatrician recommended seeing our new doctor, Dr. M.
I am SO glad we listened to her and saw Dr. M! He was very informative, and spent the perfect amount of time with us. He talked with us intelligently and gave us a lot of hope for Grace's continued improvement with her vision. He said there is nothing wrong with her eyes, and that she is near sighted (but no different than other children her age). All in all, we were very pleased with our appointment!
Ok so also, I have to give a shout out to Grace's Mammaw Rita and Aunt Susie! Mammaw keeps Grace when I work, and Aunt Susie is also home on the Fridays I work. Grace loves them so much! :) Anyway, they started a business Kuddle Designs! Kuddle Kidz and Kuddle Kritterz are handmade rag dolls/animals. Grace has a Kuddle Kritter that she LOVES! (I'll have to post pictures!)
For now, you'll have to settle with pictures from my cell phone! :)
