So this week the fear of glasses has started. Drakes eye continues to shut half way. It looks sorta like a lazy eye. He has a serious bifocal in the left lens
We paid extra to have the bifocal made as thin as possible without giving him a major bug eye. We took him to Alpine Vision and they were great!
Kids at school yesterday were calling Drake names because of his glasses. Sometimes I wish I could go smack those kids!
Drake continues with art therapy. I noticed this morning he left his snack and homework folder on the counter. The therapist explained that with PTSD it's normal to have everything a mess. It's a reflection of how Drake views himself. It's so sad and very overwhelming. He rips through his drawers like a hurricane to find things, he leaves his laces untied, his writing has gone bad and we just had parent teacher conference to learn that he's slipped back to a second grade level in writing and spelling. It's so upsetting. He may act like he is doing great but that's because I can tell he desperately wants to feel that way! He also asked for eye drops this week. That was also a first. He had been jumping on trampoline and came in crying that his eye was hurting and felt dry.
Sorry that my blogs have become boring. We are just trying to maintain a normal, positive, lifestyle. Next week we are off to the eye doc at Children's and art therapy in Orem. I will be out of town for work again. I hope he does ok. It's so hard to leave them all...
We also hiked Timp Cave last weekend! All the boys loved it!
