During the initial testing of her eye while she still had her patch on I could tell things were going well. She was reading things that she'd struggled with the last time around. I could stop holding my breath and start to breathe a bit easier. After they unpatched her and tested both eyes and her good eye, the appointment continued on a very positive note. We were all smiles today.
The patching is working.
And because its working, we aren't changing what we are doing or scaling back at all. I know Belle was hoping that the Doctor would tell her she could patch for less hours each day, but he didn't. He told her how great of a job she is doing and how she needs to keep on doing just that. So we continue at 6 to 8 hours a day (and he said closer to 6 is fine) and we go back in 6 weeks.
So we keep patching away, but we are filled with Hope! Because we have seen progress.
