Eyes

Last week was kinda crazy around here. Taylynn scratched her eye with an unsharpened pencil and cried off and on for four hours before I took her to the Dr. We just went to express care and they checked her after I paid the co pay and said they couldn't see anything because they don't have the right equipment to check eyes. So they sent us to a specialist where we had to pay an even higher co pay to get in. He confirmed she had a scratch and because of the scratch her vision was really blurred. She could only see the letter on the top of the chart, nothing else. When it comes to eyes, it's pretty scary. We never really think about being able to see, but it is such a blessing. She got an ointment that helped the corneal abrasion, but she hated it!

One of my friends is married to an eye Dr. He is my friend too. I actually set them up and they ended up getting married.....anyway.....We went and saw him a couple days later for Preston's first eye appointment and he went ahead and checked Taylynn and her eye was great and she COULD see! Yay! Dr. Swader is the best Dr. he explains things and lets me know what he is doing and looking for when he checks their eyes. I really appreciate Dr. that take their time rather than rushing just to get done. Plus I know him as a really great daddy so of course he is going to be great with my kids. He even checked Alayna's eyes so she didn't feel left out :)
Here are some pictures of the visit:

  1. Hi Caroline, Oh my it sounds like you have really been having a time. Hope all will be well very soon for everyone. Pink eye is no fun at all. I had two rounds in October, which is why I did not get to visit you and Chandler by the way. Oh I just loved your previous post about the finger prayers. So beautifully written. Your babes are very blessed to have such a special mother!! Hoping my comment actually will post, I have been having trouble leaving comments on your blog.
