So yesterday we took Ethan to his 1st Eye Appointment to rule out any deterioration from Mito and I'm happy to report that the back of his eyes look great. The Doctor did warn us that this can change very quickly with Mito kids due to the metabolism issues but for now we will celebrate that good news. One day at time, right?
Then he told us that Ethan is far sighted and will need glasses. My heart fell to my stomach because nothing screams "special needs" kid like a baby with glasses strapped around his head. So for a little while I had a little pity party for myself but thankfully God jumped in and told me to "Get over It'.
How did he do this, you ask? Well, because our Mito friend Cooper has been really sick and has now been accepted for a transplant and I'm worried about some stupid glasses....Get over it!!! So we have the prescription for the glasses but he wants us to wait a couple of weeks to see if Ethan continues to cross his eyes and if so we will get it filled. If not, the doctor wants to wait until October (6 months) and hopefully his face will have grown a little bit and the glasses will fit better....So in the end, the glasses are really no BIG deal but will you pray for Cooper and his family? He is heading to Pittsburgh for his transplant...
And truth be told I do love me some accessories! So how about these cute glasses for Ethan? What do you think?
