Ocularist Appointment

Yesterday we had Violet's Ocularist check her Shell and growth. As her growth seems to have slowed down for now, no build ups required this time. He will assess it again in 3 months time unless any problems come up between then.

Ivey's Story said...

more good news. We are trying to decide if Ivey needs 'new' eyes. She has been having a hard time with her right eye.

I hate that you were confronted by the 'nice' stranger a few days ago. I can remember a conversation amongst several of my friends that took place just weeks before Ivey was born. It carried much of the same tone, that sinners are punished, etcc. As soon as Ivey was born I thought back to the conversation. I spoke to my priest about it at one point. He too had a special needs daughter who passed away when she was five, so he has a different spin on most things with Ivey. But, from my own experiences, God never promised us perfection or an easy life, but he vowed to guide us. From my seat in this world, I get a better glimpse than most of what Life is really about and I wouldn't have it any other way.
(Even the hard days with ignorant people! Besides, you aren't alone, you have friends to help you through)
