I asked Steven to please come with. Of course he requested the day off .
So come 12:00 the 3 of us head up to The Children's Clinic. Where we were going to be meeting Rylan's new Eye Doctor, since the last one left something to be desired.
1:00 they call Rylan back. I stay out because my anxiety has gotten the best of me and I don't want to freak out all the more.
1:15 comes and they are still talking to the Doc. My anxiety of course is taking over, so I get up walk around the clinic. Sit on one of the hallway benches and lurk through Facebook, finally I just end up back in the waiting room pulling out headphones and turning on Hulu plus.
Steven and Rylan come out 5 mins later. Rylan got his eye drops now we wait while they dilate.
Steven kept talking about how much he loves this new doctor and how she reassured he is fine.
"Come back Jenny, you will like her"
"Yes, I am sure I will but the next part of the exam is what I am really nervous about"
"Jenny, seriously he is fine come back"
So I go back. As expected the new Eye doc was adorable and super sweet. She does her exam, then it happens......
"So I did notice something.......here let me draw a picture."
(Hmmmm.....the other doc never did that...but shit.)
So apparently what was noticed on Rylan's eye was not on the Optic Nerve,He has something in the way back of his eye in the Vitreous Humor (which is like jello in the eye) BY the nerve but not on it.
At this point I feel like I am going to vomit, What the hell is in my sons eye?!?!?
She wants to look more into because its not something you see everyday.
She tells me it doesn't seem to be active whatever it is.....that some inflammatory disorders can affect the eye more then others. Or it could be old blood. (BLOOD?!?!?!) She wants to put him to sleep so she can get a better look.
She informed us that she would push on it, check the pressure, take photos, check the blood, etc etc.
Now getting more information from an intelligent doctor put a little more into perspective for me. THIS must have been what the idiot we saw last year saw. SOOO if its been a year and it looks the same then there is a good chance he is ok!
She did say that it takes a LOOOONG time for things to leave the eye. But again I am thinking WHAT THE HELL IS IN HIS EYE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Of course we don't get a script until after they do the exam at the hospital. I told her I am worried about him losing his eye or vision...(yep that is how dramatic I can be .....Steven deserves a damn medal sometimes) She assures me we are a LONG way from that.
But the overprotective part of me feels like she knows something but doesn't want to say until she knows for sure. I tell Steven this and he looks at me like I have gone nuts,
Which I am pretty sure I have...but as Rylan's Mom, my main issues are......does he have an inflammatory disorder? Blood in the eye?
Well, I am gonna keep myself positive as my son in question keeps cracking jokes on his talker with his favorites being
"Why is England the wettest country?"
"Because the Queen has reigned for a long time"
"What is long, hard, and full of seamen?"
" A submarine"
Then my husband is dancing (like really dancing) to a song on the Barnyard movie.
It is hard to stay anxious for too long with these two guys,
