Aw thanks! Well, they tested her for everything and the only thing they can figure out is her eye shape and something to do with pressure (I've never been to her doctor's appointments so I hear the info in broken layman's terms from my mom
). They ruled out genetic conditions. She had very, very large eyes and looked like a doll. Her retina in one eye detached in kindergarten and her eye couldn't withstand the surgeries and she went completely blind in that eye. The doctors say the same thing will happen in the other eye. They didn't know she was legally blind until she was 3.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!
