It's All About The Patch!
Last year I wrote about how Moo was going to have to wear glasses. Now I honestly thought that she would be awful with them! But to my surprise she has taken to them really well and the first thing she does of a morning is makes sure she has them on. I think it helps that I have to wear them full time too, so it was the norm for her.
We have had several appointments and every time we have had to get a stronger prescription. Its such a worry when you know there is nothing you can actually do and just rely on a bit of glass to help them!
This week we were back at the hospital for a check-up and although she is doing really well, her right eye is considerably worse. Watching Moo struggle to see the letters was pretty awful. I was willing her to get it right but she just couldn’t. I knew what was going to happen but I just couldn’t bring myself to accept it.
The result of this check-up was the dreaded eye patch. There I was thinking it would be some huge black thing across the eye! But to my surprise it was a box full of brightly coloured patches. When Moo was told she smiled at first and nodded along, but when it came to reality of having to wear one for 2 hours a day it was a bit of a shock and she wasn’t entirely happy about it!
I decided that I would do it the afternoon of getting them and so, with a brightly pink patch in hand and Frozen on the TV she sat there with it on. It was a long 2 hours and was a bit of a struggle towards the end, but she did it and she coped pretty well! I am not sure how it will be from no on in, but I no in the long run it will help her considerably!
Motherhood is such a worry and its little things like this that pop up that I really do not like. But Its doing the job and helping my little Moo, and I cannot complain about that now can I?
