Mom Update


A few weeks ago I wrote a post about my mom. The title was "And the Blind Shall See", Well I just wanted to give a little update. There has been some more progress. Last week I took my mother to her appointment and had the pleasure of meeting her wonderful Doctor. He informed me that he's not done with her yet. He is convinced and determined to give her more sight. He is really great. You feel so comfortable with him. He made me feel like I had known him forever even though we had just met. No wonder my mom likes him so much. Well he did a laser treatment on her. Not the one he is going to do for free, this was just a quick one. He said she would be blurry for a while but should be seeing more soon. He was right. She can see more things, today she called to tell me she read the labels of her can goods. she can almost see my face. Some color is coming back too. It's all so unbelievable. We are going to her house for lunch on Sunday, I am hoping she might be able to see the kids. Keep your fingers crossed.

Fingers crossed! Prayers being said!

Oh, and in response to your question--we have a place here in CT called Arts for Healing. They offered a music therapy class. Honestly, it wasn't all that different from the music classes I took my other kids too. Some of the songs were more geared to the moms--lyrics were inspirational. The woman who led our group happened to have a brother with Ds so she was a kind ear.

Oh, that is good news. I missed the original post so will have to try to go back and find it so I can see what is going on with your mom. But regardless, I am glad to hear things are getting better.
