Good News for Little One!
This past week my youngest son saw an ophthalmologist to screen for a genetic disease called Neurofibromatosis. After a complete examination of the eyes, they found that he was free of tumors and his optic nerve looked healthy. In a very optimistic tone she said, “I think he’s going to be just fine, we’ll look again in a few years, but looking at him now, he doesn’t look like a ‘NF’ kid.”
It was such a huge relief, I didn’t spend much time worrying about this, but it feels good none the less to have it ruled out for now. If only it was that easy to screen for mental illness. Maybe someday...
