Day 69

Well, we spent 3 1/2 hrs in a dr office today. Ashlyn's eye has been giving her problems again. A year ago the eye dr said that he was able to get her vision pretty much to 20/20 again. When we went in today it was 20/40. He said that she is far and near sided so the corrective glasses that he was going to try won't work on her. He wants to try the eye patch again for 6-8 weeks (I guess that is better than the 6+ months we did last time). But he made it seem that she is pretty much going to have to have surgery to fix the problem.....especially since her eye reverted back to how it was before so quickly. Ashlyn was a good sport about it and this is a picture of her and the cool glasses that she had to wear when she was outside today since they had to dilate her pupils with drops. I guess we will find out in 6-8 weeks where we go from here.

Way to be a good sport Ashlyn. That's a LONG time to be there. We will add her eye to our prayers.

That is no fun for Ashlyn. But eye surgeries are getting pretty good these days. We will keep her in our prayers

What a trooper! Hopefully you can find a permanant solution, even if its surgery. Good luck.
