Last day of summer therapy / Eye doctor appointment

August 13th-Today Maria had OT, PT, and speech, as well as an eye doctor appointment. It was a busy day to say the least! She enjoyed all of her therapies, so that was nice. The eye doctor was less fun.

We were at the eye doctor for almost 2 hours. Most of the time was spent waiting. Maria had to have eye drops which did not go well. Then we had to wait for her eyes to dilate, which took awhile. Finally she saw the eye doctor. She was much more interested in holding his hands down and holding his instruments than playing with the toys he was trying to distract her with. At the end of the appointment he said that her eyes appeared to be good. He does not think that she is cross-eyed, far sighted, or near sighted. He also said that the back of her eye lids look good---yes that was a fun part of the appointment as well! He did suggest that we see a geneticist, so we are looking into that this coming week. Just when we thought we were winding down with the different professionals we've had to meet:)
