Brown Eyed Girl

Tuesday was the day that Ava and I met her new eye doctor, Doctor Carolyn Wu. I cannot say enough about how happy I am that we changed Doctors. She is with Children's Hospital in Boston but has hours in Sandwich 1 day a week. This means we can get Boston care close to home.
Ava was a little nervous but extremely tough about it as usual. We did have to hogtie her a little to get the eye drops in but this photo was taken in the waiting room while we let them do their work. She bounces back fast.
An assistant did a few tests before the drops and asked her some questions for basic info. After the drops another woman, who I thought was another assistant, comes and gets us and puts her on a machine to do some eye stuff ( I have no idea) and then we are in the room about 5 minutes before I realize. THIS IS THE DOCTOR! She was so real and friendly and not-doctor like.
More good news: She decided to put off the patch for now and just try out glasses for the new 2 months. We have been talking about patches and letting her try on glasses a few times to ease her into the idea as she has said numerous times that she isn't doing it.
These are the "tiger" glasses that she chose. She is doing so well that she was actually mad that we couldn't leave with the glasses right away. I needed to explain that we needed them to put special glass in just for her to make her eye muscles super strong.
My fingers are crossed that she stays this interested in wearing them.
