Every Tuesday Eli has vision therapy.
Every Tuesday we discuss his progress. We discuss what he still needs to work on. We get new exercises to do at home.
We have been able to incorporate more reading into Eli’s therapy through one of the activities he has to do. It has been amazing to see how much his reading has improved this summer.
I have a great friend at work who wears many hats. Among them is the hat of a vision specialist. She is my go to gal when I don’t quite understand why the therapist is having Eli do some of the things he does. There are some amazing things these folks are doing for Eli’s eyes, for Eli’s vision.
Things are going so well that we have graduated from one of the activities. NO MORE PIRATE PATCH!!!
Eli is now able to do all activities using both eyes.
In the beginning of June, when all of this craziness started, Eli had one – yes I said ONE – activity out of four that wasn’t patched. He hated it. He would cry, complain, in general be miserable.
Gradually we have worked our way toward what finally came to be today.
The patch has worked its way into the dress up box in the basement. There is talk of using it as part of a costume for Halloween.
So progress it is. My hazel eyed boy exited the vision therapy room with a smile from ear to ear.
Mommy I don’t have to patch anymore! EVER. AGAIN.
A little happy in our lives.
So, we’ve bumped to 7 activities everyday instead of 4. But that blasted pirate has left the building. We have sent him walking the plank.
