Eye, Eye, Ice Cream

This morning Gabe had his first appointment with a pediatric opthamologist.  After his recent evaluation with Early On there was some concern that perhaps he had a vision problem.  This momma is pretty sure it was more about wanting the big, noisy, colorful toy than the small pieces of rice. Anyway...they wanted to rule out a vision difficulty before moving forward with occupational therapy.

I am all about ruling out obstacles for Gabe so today we saw the specialist.  What is amazing is that in a short amount of time they are able to get very specific information about his optic nerves, eye muscle strength, and vision.  Since he is still dealing with cerebral spinal fluid in his ventricles there is a chance the extra pressure could damage the nerves and muscles.  However, at this point we were thrilled to hear that Gabe's eyes checked out perfectly.  This is one specialist we will not need to see again for a year.  Yay!

In celebration, we thought we should share a sneak peek at just one of the many Great Gabe Escape packages available to win in our upcoming fundraising giveaway!  Over the next few weeks we will look forward to previewing the rest of them for you as well.



  1. Thank you, Lord!

  2. That is awesome!

    The ice cream giveaway sounds yummy!

  3. Ice cream for a year?? Man I could go for that :)

    I am so glad Gabe's eyes checked out and you can cross that off the list for 12 months!! (sounds linger than a year, and sometimes we need that :) )

  4. Awesome news! And how exciting that he is handling the fluid...can you say ROCKSTAR?!! Praying for you and your little guy always. Hugs!!!


We appreciate all of your comments and love.
Encouraged by you,
Gabe & his Momma
