what i want today - healthy eyes for kendal
kendal is such a special child. he has never had a regular doctor and i don't know why i thought this would have been any different. thus far in his short four years, he's had an orthopedist (for his toes), a neurologist, a radiologist, a urologist, another orthopedist (for his ankles and knees), two orthotist, at least three physical therapists, and now a ophthalmologist.
last week, we took kendal to the eye doctor and he was immediately referred to a specialist, we didn't even finish the exam, the doctor said it wasn't worth it because with his vision, there was "nothing they could do for him in that office" - i thought about how maybe there was a reason that i grew up with a best friend with bad vision.
he tested really bad at that regular eye doctor so today we go to this one for more tests - the kid may have horrible vision! or, supposedly he could have been "tricking" the machines (which is unlikely he could be tricking it that much - his prescription could possibly be as bad as a +8 in both eyes!!!!) I pray that he was tricking that machine. kendal's specialist appointment is today. his eyes will be dilated today.
at least he doesn't have allergies (we saved that one for holly).
