Back in the chair again...

It was re-check time.  So back she went. After resuming patching of 4 hours a day (2 hours at school and 2 at home), I was anxious to see if we would see any changes yet - or if it would be too soon. 

It was a Good news and Bad news visit. 

Good news:  

Belle's vision is improving, patching is working and doing its job.  When she was reading the letters off the chart I had a feeling we would hear that her vision was back on the right track again.  So, that's the good news.  We have improvement and this is a beautiful thing!

Bad news:

Still more patching for Belle with no reduction in her hours.

I "get it".  And I know that if we stop her eyes will slip again.   But... Belle was less than thrilled to hear that.  I think the exact words were that "she wanted to 'hit me with that spoon' (referring to the eye cover they use during the test) - a little agression... frustration... yeah, just a touch.  She cried when we got to the car how "she would do anything to have 2 eyes back".   Ugh.
