HE LOVES THEM! I was so worried because he is a very intense child that he would rip um off, he must REALLY tell a difference cause he hasnt ripped um off ONCE! Im excited my baby can see. His lenses are pretty thick and when you look at him his eyes are all magnified lol. My poor baby, its sad and happy at the same time. He looks handsome. I am ordering a new camera and hopefully get it by the end of next week so I can take a pic and show you guys!

Oh by the way, thanks for your support on the other board. I go to a hematologist on monday and they will decide what to do from there as far as a bone marrow biopsy goes. I HONESTLY dont think he has it, the only symptoms he has is anemia and fevers constantly, but nothing else, and blood looks good, and a spinal.

I think he is pre-epileptic. My MIL had high fevers all through childhood, and when she was 11 had her first seizure and was epileptic ever since. They said it was fever induced epilepsy. The doctors tell me "that doesnt happen, and if it did, it wouldnt be genetic". Granted no one else in the family is, but he is moody and these fevers, which is EXACTLY how my MIL started out. So we will see, I wanna see a nuerologist. Ill keep ya updated. 8 fevers in 6 months, 104 and up for 5 days. Its crazy. I cant get the fevers down!

I am glad he loves his new glasses and I agree with sammie, my dd loves her glasses because she could see so much better.

I am glad that things are rolling with the hematologist, better to be safe than sorry, and still keeping you guys in our T's and P's. Definately keep us posted about how things go. It does sound more like what your MIL went through, and if I understand, epilespy itself can be genetic, so maybe hers was brought on by the fevers, not just caused by them, but I am not a doc, so hey, what do I know right?

Thats great that he loves them, I was nervous with my DD also @ 1st. But she did good, but when I wasn't looking, like in the car, or if I went in another room, she'd take them off.. She does good now though.. Good to hear he likes them! I can't wait to see pictures!
