Long Day

Yesterday was quite the long day. Amidst all the regular therapies, we saw William's eye doctor and found out what we really already knew. William's visual acuity is somewhere between 20/400 to 20/700 with best correction. Basically that just means he's legally blind. On the upside, his right eye seemed stable and maintained it's vision over the last 3 months. His left eye, however, was slightly worse. He is doing very well and compensates nicely. I am so thankful that we chose to have his implants when we did. I can't imagine him not being able to hear OR see. He really uses his sense of hearing and relies on it heavily. He uses either the sound of my voice or touch to find me. Again, very thankful for Cochlear Implants.

Okay, it's been awhile. William has been healthy for a significant amount of time, praise the Lord! School has been keeping us pretty busy. I have 6 in school this year, a first for me and I'm teaching 2 of them how to read. I've also discovered that Elly has Dyslexia, which has been a new challenge, but I think we're starting to get it. At least we've had an entire week of school with no tears - that's got to be good, right?
In keeping with the idea of school, I was recently emailed this list of "Why teachers lose their minds." I'm only posting the funniest ones...hope you enjoy them!
