The Eyes Have it!!

Courtney's eye exam with Dr. Robinson in Windham, Me. went very well today. He said her eyes look normal and healthy but the connection to the brain has been scrambled and needs to connect with the "backup" part of the middle brain. Also, her eyes are not focusing on things because they are not working simutaneously. One eye is looking one place and the other eye is trying to find it. That would blurr anyone's vision, let alone try to decifer it. He gave us some eye exercises to do with Courtney and in about two weeks or so she should start to see more clearly. It remains to be seen how long it will take for her to see well enough to drive or do more complicated things. All in all it's very good news and we look forward to giving Courtney the old one,two in eye workouts! Thanks to everyone for all your support and positive thoughts! Prayers are the key and she is living proof!
Love, Julie/Mom

Yahoo! Keep doing those eye exercises, Court. I love how determined you are about keeping up with all of your therapies. Your positive spirit and determination along with the tremendous support you have from family and friends has made a huge difference in your continuing recovery. Pretty soon you'll be able to see a real pigdeer!

That's so awesome!!! I love the Christmas picture you guys sent me by the way... the antlers are an improvement (and they'd probably improve your cat even more :-p) Hope you're feeling better every day.
