Her Little Eye

Carrah's strabismus is just getting worse. Both eyes turn in a bit every now and then and the one on the right is severe. It just breaks my heart. I don't know why i'm so sensitive about it, but I really am.

I was in Wal Mart Saturday night and the checkout lady started laughing and said "Oh how funny, she looked up at me and her eyes went crossed." My face got blood red and my eyes welled up with tears, but I didn't say anything. I just wasn't prepared at that moment.

We got in the car and I just burst into tears. My husband kept saying "don't let it get to you like that. she didn't know etc.." But still, just the point that people would make fun of a child.. be it that they had a disability or not! It isn't funny to make fun of anyone..especially my child who cannot help it!

I'm sure it is silly for me to overreact so much, but I just wish people were cautious about what they say. No that lady didn't know anything about Carrah, but that doesn't give her the right to say something like that.. in my opinion. I don't want people to feel sorry for her because she is a normal child, but then again I don't want her getting made fun of, poked fun at either.

"To Advanced" for Early Intervention

I took Carrah for her first EI Therapy today. We met with the OT and she went over all of the paperwork with me. Then she went to evaluate Carrah and was amazed.

This is how out meeting went.

Can she...

Gross Motor:
Crawl - Check!
Stand and cruise?? - Check!

Fine Motor:
Pick up objects - Check!
Transfer objects between hands - Check!
Pull open drawers - Check!

"Hmm..I just don't know what I could work with her on right now. She is more advanced than most of the kids that come in here. I think she is to advanced for the program at this time. However, if you see a problem arise in the future, give us a call and we'll get her right in."

So, I felt extremely blessed that she is "to advanced" for therapy right now. It's really amazing to think that this little girl who has a "disability" is doing more things at her age than some "normal kids" I'm thankful to the lady for offering us her help in the future may we need it.
