As I try to figure out how to start this I’m feeling a little like the new kids trying to join a lunch table. Will I be interesting? Can I be funny? Will anyone want to talk to me? I’m new to this blogging thing, but found it very helpful when I was preparing myself for my 2 1/2 year old’s Strabismus surgery last Friday. It got me thinking, maybe I have some knowledge to share or at least another place to vent!
We found out that my daughter Teagan needed glasses when she was 18 months old. I remember crying as we left the PO’s office thinking how am I going to keep these on her? What will people think or say? and THIS IS NOT FAIR, SHE’S JUST A BABY!! We got through it though and I actually love her glasses now. They are so cute and so much a part of who she is. Glasses are not the only thing we have had to deal with though. In the last year we have done patching, bi-focals, eye drops, more patching and finally surgery. We have no idea where the end of the road might be (I hope it does not include more patching) but we know we can handle it.
I think it will help to have another place to turn to, where people know exactally what we are going through. I look forward to sharing our adventures and reading about everyone elses.
