In that time we have known several kids start and finish patching and manage to beat amblyopia. No more patching for them. The best news ever!
I shared with B today that a child we know has "graduated" and how exciting that is.
"They get to have their 2 eyes", she said. "I hope it is soon that I get my 2 eyes again".
I worked the angle that good news may be right around the corner and praised her for all her hard work! I know it isn't easy and we are working hard to not let this impact her quality of life and active lifestyle. But to whine and put myself in her place it really stinks to have to do this every day for hours on end.
Yet she continues to battle on and patches away..hour by hour, day by day.
