Jason took her to the optometrist today, and you'll never believe what he was told.
The doctor sees a slight "shadow" which she thinks might be a cataract!
Anna Marie has an appointment with a specialist on Wednesday. I was going to just let Jason take her, but the more I think about it, the more I think I'm going. We have a meeting with the publisher on Wednesday afternoons, but I talked to my general manager and she seemed to think it would be OK.
(It's not that I don't trust Jason or his mad doctor-appointment skillz, mind you; it's me. Totally me. Totally me and my hand-wringingness and the thought of having to concentrate during a staff meeting at the exact moment my daughter is seeing a pediatric opthamologist. Is all.)
Dr. Sallye (her first name, not her last) thinks that if it is a cataract in her left eye, and if it's removed, she may have perfect vision out of that side.
Her other eye will be another matter. I suppose the new doc will look at both on Wednesday.
So, please continue to pray for all of us. Anna Marie is (understandably) nervous at the thought of going to a new doctor. As much as I've tried to keep cool these past few days about her eyes, I'm sure she knows something is going on now. And she'll probably have to have her eyes dilated, which she really hates (can't blame her!)
I'll keep everyone posted.
(Funny story - I had a friend in high school, and we were on the phone one night talking about an assignment, and I told him I'd keep him posted about something. He burst into fits of laughter, saying he had visions of Melissa-shaped Post-it notes everywhere.)
(I failed to see the humor.)
