Holy cow! She told me a while ago she can see words she writes, but sometimes not words in books.

So I said well, I must need to schedule her a doctor's appointment. So it is spring break, and that seemed like a natural time to get it out of the way. We went today.

They talked to her a moment, then weighed her (52 lbs) and then took her to the chart.
E


F


T O Z
That's the top 3 lines...well there was more on line 2, but they didn't have Courtney read it so I don't remember. Anyway, she clearly says with the first eye "E" then "Another E" (uh-oh), then "L" (Like, major uh-oh). So they have her switch eyes. "E" "F" "L" (Really? Again?) "O" "S" (Hmmm, yep...)

So clearly Courtney will be needing some glasses. This is such a foreign thing to me as there were like 8 lines below the 3 I wrote...I could read 7 of them easily...so uh...we'll see. We have to wait til the next doc has the referral before I can schedule the appointment.

I would be afraid if Brendan ever needed glasses he loses things as much as I do.

ETA I do know he will be getting them down the road as one eye is with astigmatism. I didn't start wearing glasses until 5th grade.

I do wish they made better glasses for noses from cleft lips that make your nose not be able to have the arch and every glasses I wear they slip off.

I know nothing about loosing glasses, but I do know about loosing sunglasses, so may end up being an issue. However, I'm not worried about her loosing them at all at this point. All I'm worried about is that I want to make sure she can see.
