I was surprised at how good he looked so soon after surgery. Yes, he had some bloody areas, but not as bad as I thought. It cleared up an a week or 10 days. Surgery makes an AMAZING difference. She is so cute! I am sure it makes such a difference to them as well. I know it affected my interaction with Joel. I was not as "engaging" with him because he was never LOOKING at me. He still has issues with eye contact, but he is better. Vision is such a huge issue. I am pregnant now and hope this baby is OK. It is hard to deal with!

it is hard sometimes isn't it? We are in vision therapy, so we have a vision educator and a mobility therapist. Bith are provided free through the school district! Is that something you could get Joel into?bv

Not really. His quality of vision is not really affected. He sees probably close to normal (from what they can tell), but he probably does not have depth perception. He misses steps or runs into things pretty often. He broke his arm when he was 2 because we "fell" off the patio. It was the built in bench part and I don't think he realized how high it was. I'm a school psychologist in my other life. SAHM now, but familiar with the services at school concerning vision. Joel does go to the speech preschool offered from the district 2X a week, but that is another issue all together!

Jamie is one to take off running while she is playing with you and run into the doorway or the table.
