Here is a quick FAQ on eye prosthetics. Your questions get answered finally!
Eye Exams... no one really likes them but they are so important! As a new parent, I would have never known when was the right time. Maybe before kindergarten or only if she complained of eye issues. Explore when to get your childs first eye exam and how often to follow up.
December 1997 and April 1999 will forever be etched in my mind because a student (students in the case of Columbine) walked into their school and caused a senseless tragedy. Here we are, twenty years later, having the same types of conversations we were then. Why?!?! I want to scream that word out loud every time I see another tragedy unfold in another school in another town. I want to understand why this keeps happening without our political leaders taking steps to curtail these tragedies. We, as parents, should not be afraid to send our children to school.
We ran a few errands and headed home. I hurried to the bathroom and changed into my pjs. I quickly went and got Scarlett from my mother in law. Noticing her diaper seemed heavy, I placed her on the changing table. While changing her diaper, I noticed that her right eye looked off.
Finally our follow up appointment with Dr. Rama came. We had also spent the last three weeks trying to find as much information as we could about Scarlett's conditions. You would think that it would be easy in this day and age. Wrong.
A few hours later, off we went back to the hospital. We get to the check in window and let them know our last name. That's when the lady says, "Are you sure you are in the right place?" We look at her completely confused and promptly ask where our baby is, if she is not where we left her.
I was running myself ragged between the fourth and fifth floors of the hospital. All I wanted to do was hold my baby, which I had not done since the pediatrician took her for her check the morning before.
When we got to the NICU, Scarlett was hooked up to monitors immediately. We were scared but just wanted to find out what was wrong with her.

Am I? This is a question that I have struggled with since discovering Scarlett's conditions. Am I a "special needs" momma?
