A few days ago I mentioned that my Tween went to the Eye Doctor because we noticed he was unable to read or see things… No one on my side or his dad’s side of the family ever had eye problems so this eye doctor thing was completely new to me and still is. We were told he has a 20/50 eye sight… not too sure what that means but my husband said he’s ½ blind… that freaked me out.. he had perfect 20/20 at his last school check up a few month ago….So we are venturing into new things, I can’t even ask questions because I don’t know what to ask.. I feel so helpless.. so when we went to the Dr, I though ok give him some lenses and he will get better and we would move on.. Then the Eye Dr. (I’m sure there is a fancy word for him, but remember I’m German, I don’t know ALL the English words just yet..lol)… said “nope, he will need them from now on, not something that will go away, it actually will get worse” ….. again, I’m freaking out.. my baby is not even 12 and his eyes can get even worse….?? I’m worried and sad at the same time, the Dr. ensured me that things like this can come up over night and poof your eyes are gone… that is scary….
My Tween took it pretty good, he was actually excited to pick out some glasses and I didn’t even care how much they cost at this point, my main concern was “he needs to wear them”… so today he went and picked up his glasses, all proud, I got a Text at the office with his picture….. Doesn’t he look cute with his new glasses….?? I’m soo proud of him; he is such a remarkable kid and after he put the glasses on said ” Wow, I didn’t know there was so much more to see!”… Well.. that made me feel like a bad mom again, I should have been able to prevent that.. but how?? But he will be okay…. Right ???
For now, I’m just proud of my Tween and I wanted ya all to know that I have the BEST Tween ever!!!! After all… I’m just a mom ….
