I kept getting headaches. That is strange for me. I normally get one headache a year. Kendal brought home a paper from the school nurse saying she failed her vision screening at school. I made an appointment for both of us a few days after Christmas. Here is the result.
My sweet Kendal can't see very well. I feel badly about that. For 7 and a half years, she has not seen very much with her right eye. It is 20/200. Her left eye is perfect - 20/20. Her right eye has not developed like it should have. It is smaller, but we can't see that. We just see a pretty blue eyeball.
Very soon Kendal's good eye will be patched over to make that bad eye grow and develop. The doctor said we have a limited amount of time to do this since she is nearing 8 years old. He hopes to get that 20/200 eye to around 20/30 or 20/40. I sure hope so.
My headaches are gone. I think glasses are completely annoying, but going to bed with a headache and waking up with a headache, and enduring a headache all day is much more annoying. YIPPEE for modern medical knowledge!
