Update on Brooke’s Glasses

Brooke has worn her glasses for 4 months. She has already outgrown her first pair of glasses. When we got ready to get a new pair, Joel suggested we see the specialist his friend recommended in Lubbock. So we set up an appointment for Mid-September.

We went to her appointment and learned that the prescription was switched on her current glasses. The prescription for her left eye was meant for her right and vice-versa. The old eye doctor’s office made a mistake and Brooke had been wearing the wrong prescription for 4 months.

This new doctor wrote the prescription for the new glasses and a prescription for eye drops. The eye drops will go in her left eye to make it dilated. This will strengthen her right eye. We have to put the drops in two consecutive days a week. We are a little nervous about putting drops in her eyes but want to try something more than just glasses.

Brooke got her new glasses the other day. She picked pink with lady bugs. 🙂 I asked and they assured me that they were the right prescription.

Mother’s Day Out

The girls are finally in a Mother’s Day Out program. We have had them on waiting lists for the past year. In July I contacted one of the programs to see if she had any openings. Originally she told me that she didn’t have any openings. The following week she contacted me about an opening. We jumped at the chance to sign them up. It is a church program that includes Math, Science, Music, and Art. The girls will go Tuesday and Thursdays for 6 hours.

The girls had their meet the teacher Thursday, August 28. I was very nervous about them starting school. Both girls were shy the first day. They cried a little but were fine within a few minutes. I do have to admit I felt a huge relief when they were at school. I had free time for the first time in two years. I could tell it was going to be a good change for me.
