The Cutest 4-Eyes in the World!!!


Upon our last doctor's visit, they retested Drew's eyes since he didn't do so hot on his eye exam back at his 3 year appt. He showed no progress so they made an appointment for him to be seen by the eye doctor. Well, he found that Drew has an astigmatism in his left eye. That basically means the pupil is shaped more like a football than completely round. So the plan is to try glasses for the next 6 weeks and the dr. will re-examine the eye to see if the glasses are helping. Please pray they will otherwise we'll have to move to something a bit more aggressive like a patch or drops. (and for the record, it took 3 of us to hold him down at the office when they needed to dilate his eyes...no more drops, please!!) So we are all learning some new levels of responsibility and care, which is never a bad thing!! He even picked out a cool Superman case that he absolutely loves!! Anything to make it exciting, right!
I have to admit, when we walked out of the office a few weeks ago holding the perscription in my hand I wanted to cry. I felt so bad for our Drew. First being sick soooo much and now this on top of it! But I told Drew that God created him perfectly for the plan that He has for his life and this is part of it. He basically thinks it's cool because he has glasses like Clark Kent, and "of course, Uncle Brian!!!!!" to quote him!!!
So, on to a new adventure in life, waiting for the next. Which is coming by way of our basement!!! The crew was here Th. & Fri. and almost all the walls and doors are up. Looks like they are going to finish up on Mon. and then the last phase until completion!!! We are SO EXCITED!!!! The Lord is good! Have a GREAT weekend, everybody!!!

What a cutie! He can be Clark Kent for Halloween! :) I didn't get glasses until I was 8, but I thought they were WAY cool. :)

Cool glasses! Those don't look like the normal kid glasses I've seen. He looks so cute in this pic.
