Chase's new "Smarty Pants" image

Ok, it's been a few days since the BIG appointment, LOL, here's the update...The feeling is still that his field of vision does not extend beyond 3 feet and we don't know if he has total central OR peripheral vision at this point. The good news is this...he's using BOTH eyes...and he is very nearsighted in the right and somewhat nearsighted in the our little man now has GLASSES! He may not see a lot, but what he can see is clearer than it was a week ago.

He loves his glasses. He has never taken them off yet. Hopefully we'll begin to see some leaps and bounds in gross motor skills with this new development. He is getting PT 3x a week, vision 2x a week, about to start OT 2x weekly, and is starting with a special ed. teacher here at home to prepare him for the visually impaired preschool.

I guess that's it for now, we'll keep you all updated!!!

Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!

BIG appointment tomorrow!

Just a little vent to say I won't be sleeping tonight! Chase goes to see his pediatric ophthalmologist tomorrow morning at 9am. I can't stand the wait. We haven't seen him for 6 months and I'm hoping he sees some improvement tomorrow. I just wanted to let everyone know, in case someone reads this tonight you can be anxious with me! LOL I'll update in the morning!!!
