Today was Ellie’s Eye Doctor Appointment which took up a big chunk of our day. They did several tests on there eye and determined it is slowly improving but she needs to continue taping her eye all the time. I did ask the Ophthalmologist if she could just have an hour break a day. He said he would prefer not but I can give her a break if I feel she needs it. Ellie’s skin is getting really irritated from the tape but I think taping is a much better option than surgery. She still has several spots that are susceptible to an eye infection and loss of vision so for now we tape. My parents took Ellie to her favorite Chinese Restaurant for lunch Orient Café in Homer Glen, Ellie is a Pork Fried Rice Addict. She really enjoyed spending time with them after a long day of Doctors appointments. Once we got home around 2:40pm she was knocked out till about 7pm. She gets so wiped out so quickly, it makes me sad. Jake, Dave and I went to family therapy with the Social Worker with out Ellie today. We felt like it was important to talk candidly about how we all feel and we didn’t want Ellie to feel bad like it was her fault. Not only that she just wanted to rest. It was a much needed appointment for all three of us. I think it helped Dave and I so much. Sorry I didn’t take any photos today. I think today is the first day I did not take photos since surgery. I am sure Ellie is appreciative of that.
Tomorrow is another long day of Doctor Appointments but my parents are taking us to Ellie’s Favorite Hibachi grill after for dinner at Chi Tung. My parents and Sister set this up right after Ellie had surgery and Ellie has been talking about it since. She is super excited and can’t wait for the show and her favorite noodles.
Oh yes by the way Thank You for the awesome dinner whoever brought the Steak and Potatoes that was a crowd pleaser for sure. I know that put a smile on Dave’s and Jake’s face for sure. Thank you again.
A mother with a battle ahead of her.
