So... about a year ago i noticed that Rylee
was blinking her left eye a lot.
Her pediatrician thought her vision was off
so she referred me to a pediatric ophthalmogist in October.
Rylee was 20/20. I asked the doc if her left eye blinking more
than her right was a big deal. He said that some kids form a habit
and eventually grow out of it.
I decided to let it go and not worry about it.

Over the past 6 months her left eye has been getting a lot worse.
It blinks all the time really fast. I made an appt and today
was the day. We went in this morning to talk a little
more about this crazy eye.
The doctor did a few little tests and took a look
with all his interesting equipment. He was very vague and
didn't say a whole
lot. He noticed her doing it during our appointment and said its
involuntary which concerned him. He said he wants us
to get in and see a ophtha-neurologist at
the University of Utah hospital. Since the waiting list is
about 5 months to get in he decided to call himself to schedule for us.
He made the appointment for 4 weeks from now.
June 18th is the day.
He was pretty concerned and mentioned something
about it most likely being nerve related and
then said the word benign.
BENIGN... what is that supposed to mean?
You think she has a tumor in there?
He didn't say anything back to that but said we
should get in sooner than later..
Please keep Rylee in your prayers.
I will keep you all posted.
We obviously hope for the best around here and are
not going to think about until we know more.
Thanks xoxo
