|Too bad for them that Mommy likes "matchy-matchy".|
Dear friends and family,
Lucianna had her eye appointment today and we were thrilled to learn that she is continuing to improve! The pediatric ophthalmologist has given us permission to drop her eye drop dose to once a day for the left eye and once every other day for the right eye. The dilating eye drop, (the one that burns), is only in her left at night, and she tolerates it really well now. She no longer cries or whines, she does it and then says, "where's my gummy vitamin?" (Which is her treat for the eye drop...instead of all the jelly beans I started out giving her!) Considering that there was a time where we were administering drops every hour, (for what seemed like an eternity), we are grateful for this news.
|We love watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!|
So nearly 6 months after learning our baby girl has JRA and almost 3 months after learning she has Uveitis, she is doing well. My brain tells me to be cautiously optimistic, but my heart is exploding with joy and profound encouragement.
I will send another update after our Jingle Bell Walk/Run and her next eye appointment which is December 11th. See you with bells on December 8th!
Lucianna's proud and joyful Mama
