Laura has been seeing double for quite some time now.
Please excuse my feeble photo-editing skills,
but I believe this is what she sees a lot of the time,
in addition to other weird and wonderful
As I've said before,
we've been on a journey
to figure out what's going on.
A journey that's involved lots of
and various diets
and much emotion of one sort or another.
But on Tuesday we received a new diagnosis,
and instructions for a treatment
that actually might help.
Laura's ophthalmologist thinks she has
which causes headaches and double vision.
The double vision in turn
might be triggering migraines.
So next week we begin seeing an orthoptist
who will give Laura exercises
that should cure this problem, at least!
If he's right I believe Laura's life might
become a whole lot easier.
although I've been excited before
and it's only led to disappointment
when a diagnosis
or a diet has proved wrong.
So I'm quietly excited.
My next challenge
is to make sure Laura actually
DOES the exercises.
Cause she looks angelic ... right?

I'm glad the end of term is in sight
and that we have a direction to follow
for the next month, at least.
