It’s been a busy week at my house. I have had so many appointments this week…often several in one day. I was able to finally get my hair cut and colored. Things have been so crazy over the past few months that I just haven’t even had time to make a hair appointment. I was way overdue and so happy to get my all the gray colored–woo hoo!
We also got some news that was a bit difficult. We took my little guy to the eye doctor and they told us he has some big issues with one of his eyes. The medical term is Amblyopia…which basically means that his left eye doesn’t function like it should. While his right eye is nearly 20/20, the left eye is 20/300. They are hoping that patching the good eye will help the “bad” eye get stronger and improve. He will also start wearing glasses everyday.
I have to admit I am a bit nervous. Jeb had some big delays when he was younger and has worked hard and made incredible progress. We were hoping we were getting past all the hurdles but it looks like we might have a few more ahead. He is being a trooper and even seems to be excited about the prospect of “wearing glasses like daddy.” I just hope that excitement lasts past the 1st day
If any of you guys happen to have experience with Amblyopia or glasses/patching, I’d love to hear any tips or suggestions. Jeb is 6 and very strong willed so I will likely need all the help I can get.
With the super busy week, I never had a chance to shop. I will definitely shop this weekend as I have no fresh veggies or fruit and will be out of milk by tomorrow. So this week I have a weekly spending of $0. I will count any shopping I do this weekend towards next week’s totals.
