More Good News!

Ella's eye exam was today. I was SO nervous about this appointment. I don't know why it worried me so much, I mean yeah glasses would be a pain in the butt to keep on her but in the grand scheme of things it's not horrible. Anyhow, Ella's eyes checked out just fine. The doctor said she is far-sighted but that it is normal for her age. He also said she may sometimes seem cross-eyed but it's because of her wide flat nasal bridge and somehow that gets in her line of vision but that she is not actually crossing her eyes. So, no glasses hooray!!!

I've been having a kind of hard time these past couple of weeks, I guess because Ella has basically had appointments everyday. I'm glad she had all the appointments because it's a lot of things that hadn't been checked out ever that her new doctor wanted looked at. Sometimes it is easy to forget that there is anything "wrong" with your child but then you do all these appointments and it seems new all over again. So with that newness has come some sadness. But I am happy to announce that other than her school we have no appointments on the horizon, so things can get back to normal (whatever that means!)

Yippee for Ella. No glasses! Since you don't have Dr appointments tomorrow do you have time to play after school. Riley is doing great and Rex and I are going stir crazy. Let me know what you think- we are up for most anything.

Yea for Ella! I couldn't imgaine having to have glasses on one of my kids. I remember taking Walker (my 3 yr old) in for his yearly check up and he had just figured out that he could go cross eyed on purpose a couple of weeks before. The doc goes through the whole examine and then at the end started to freak out because she just noticed "he is horribly cross eyed!" I then had to explain his new talent and we had a good laugh!

So glad her eyes are fine! Glad the doctors appointments are all over for you.

They can be so stressful, and as you say, they can be a reminder of things you'd rather not dwell on. Sorry you were feeling sad; hope things look brighter now!
