Nicky: it was either a stroke or vertigo. He’s walking and eating! No lie, B and I thought we were driving him to the vet to put him to sleep :( So glad he’s on the mend!

Max: today was his follow-up with our normal pediatric optho. When the doctor first tested his vision, he was able to read nearly every letter off the wall, at all sizes, which was freaking B and I out (in a good way) — but it turns out that he was peeking with his uninjured eye through my fingers! Which of course, made it necessary for me to leave the room and cry, because the roller-coaster was a bit more than I was prepared to deal with.

Ultimately, though, the news was EXCELLENT. We changed his drops regimen because of his light sensitivity, but most importantly: we found that he does have an intact visual system! WOO! He could see enough to identify a birthday cake emoji thing on the largest setting, and the doctor’s fingers, in addition to being able to detect light. Brandon broke down sobbing, he was so happy, and Dr. Cooper threw her arms up in victory and we all hugged a lot.

We still don’t know what’s going on with his lens or his cornea, but damn, this was such an amazing thing to hear. His instructions for this week were to stay home and be a couch potato, so he came home and told Brandon he was ready to be a “lazy tomato”.

My kiddos. <3
