On Monday, Ashley had an eye doctor appointment. She’s been complaining about headaches and blurry vision when she reads, and I knew it was time to get her into the eye doctor. After searching forever to find one that would actually take our insurance, we spent the day driving to and from the eye doctor’s office.
They eye doctor was wonderful. He looked just like Howard Cunningham from Happy Days. So incredibly nice, and made Ashley feel comfortable right away. After just a few minutes with her, he discovered that she has an astigmatism in both eyes, and it’s causing her to strain her eyes to focus. He put her in some test glasses, and she couldn’t believe the difference. She didn’t even want to take the hideous things off because they helped her so much. He had her try on some frames and she settled on some simple copper wire frames. They’re totally cute, and they’re perfect for her. Plus they look great with her new hair cut. We’ll drive back out that way later this week or early next week to get them. She can’t wait.
Lucy had her 3 year well visit yesterday. I was actually really looking forward to this well visit because I wanted to show off how much Lucy has improved over the past year. She sings, dances, jumps, kicks, and chatters at super speed and hasn’t stopped since she finally figured out how.
So, all in all it was a good well visit. It was an easy well visit for sure, and that is always a good thing.
On Monday, I’ll take Jace to the ENT for his hearing test and to talk about his recurring strep throat. Next month we’ll have Parker’s well visit, and then I’m hoping we’ll be done with doctors for awhile. I’m exhausted – and so is my car! So much driving!
I’ll be sure to post pictures of Ashley’s new glasses as soon as she gets them.
