More pictures and an update

Brock’s eye doctor appointment yesterday went really well. He continues to see relatively well, despite the blind spot in his right eye. He’s nearsighted and has an astigmatism (and we’ve known that for over a year) so the doctor said Brock’s finally ready to get glasses.  Won’t he be the cutest bespectacled three year old ever?!

I was SO proud of how well Brock did at the appointment. We’ve been seeing the same opthamologist ever since Brock was 12 months old and in the PICU the very first time. (At that time they were checking to see if the fungal infection had infiltrated enough to require an injection (!!!) into his eyeball.) Every. single. time. we’ve seen this doctor over the last 2+ years I’ve had to hold Brock down in order for Dr. T to examine his eyes. Yesterday he climbed right up into the chair by himself and let Dr. T look in his eye like it was no big deal! I’m not sure you can really appreciate that fact  unless you had seen how traumitizing eye exams used to be for him. So proud!

I’m hoping to having time to come back and post a recap of our trip but in the meantime, here are some more pictures.



  1. Such sweet pictures. What awesome memories you made! Thanks for posting… it’s a great reminder to pray! xxoo
