Things are Good

Just wanted to write a quick update since it has been so long since I posted last. Things in the Phillips house have been good. We had a great summer going to Arizona and Palm Springs with Grandma and Grandpa. Now that school has started, we are getting back into the swing of things. Hope has a new teacher this year, Ms. Elizabeth. She is quite the hit around our house, and Hope talks about her often. She also has missed OT, and has been asking about it a lot. She is glad to be back in school, and seems to thrive with the structure and fun activities. We went back to her original surgeon a few weeks ago, who was amazed at the way her eye has completely re-attached itself. He exact quote: “Im normally a cautious and conservative man, and I have to say that what I see here is astounding.” He is going to have us come back in a few weeks to put Hope under anesthesia and do an eye exam that goes deep into the cellular level. He said that he will be able to tell me exactly what she can see after doing the test, so its quite exciting! He thinks her vision looks promising, and said that we need to fight for her vision, and wear her glasses every day. He said that her brain will train her eye, and that wearing the glasses will play a huge role in that. I will write another update as soon as we have the test. More to come later….
