I swear I don't have Munchausen's by proxy; my kids just need frequent visits to the doctor.
At Daniel's 4-year checkup, he couldn't see the stereo images during his eye exam. When the pediatrician looked at Dan's eyes, he couldn't be sure that both eyes were focusing on the same point.
I scheduled a visit to the eye doctor. After an hour of three different people checking out his vision, they dilated his eyes.
(This was taken 6 hours later. Ni Hao, Kai-Dan!)
When the doc looked in those big black holes, she determined he has something called amblyopia. She was very impressed that our pediatrician had picked up on it since it was very subtle. Between Dan's eyes and Eve's tumors, I almost want to recommend him to you, but I want to make sure he doesn't get booked up in case Nat has something that also needs diagnosing.
Daniel gets to wear an eye patch over his good eye for two hours everyday for the next two months in hopes that the bad eye will learn to kick it up a notch. I guess if that doesn't work, the next step will be glasses, and then we can teach him all those cute lines from Jerry Maguire.
I'm pretty sure this shouldn't count toward the daily two hours.
