Today's update:
No word from Sloan. I definitely need to call them tomorrow, just didn't have a chance today.

The eye doctor's office didn't have power this morning, but we were already on the road when I got the call. Cara and I spent some time at fellow-triplet-mom Jill's house which is only a mile away. When power came back on we headed over there only to find they were closed until 12:30. We went and got lunch and then waited until 12:30 to see if they could get us in (our appt was at 10:55). We did get in, but didn't get any answers yet again. During our conversation with the doctor, it became clear that he had somehow recorded that during her last visit her head tilted to the right when looking far away. This just has NEVER been the case, but I couldn't convince him otherwise. I have brought picture to our Oct, March, and June visits all showing the head tilt to the left. Despite this, he is calling it a "variable head tilt" meaning that it changes. I was very frustrated because this is not what we have seen for the past two years. Her left eye also tested significantly weaker than her right eye which supports my hunch that something is wrong with that left eye, thus the reason she tilts her head to the left so she is only using the right eye when looking in the distance. I'm starting to think that I need to bring an advocate to every doctor's appointment! This doctor wants us to come back in 4 weeks and check it again. After talking about it, Matt and I decided to get a second opinion from an eye specialist at Strong. God gave my little girl those two beautiful brown eyes and I want to make sure that they are the best they can be!

Sickness report: Brady threw up two times this morning right after breakfast. A few yucky diapers today too between he, Eli, and Allie. Aren't you glad I share all of this with you?

Until tomorrow...


  1. Wednesday will be 4 weeks out little ones have had this! I pray Brady has a speedier recovery!

  2. Sorry the doctor's visit was so rough--first all the delays, then the inaccurate notes... Sounds like a second opinion is exactly what is needed. How frustrating. It's amazing how many doctors are convinced of their own infalability.

    Sorry Brady's still sick! I hope he is better soon!!


  3. I would've had a heart attack by now not hearing from Sloan yet and my kids being sick again! I'll pray for you to be strong. There's some strange sicknesses going round. We all have a severe indegestion for one day and gassy but that's it. Weird! We still pray several times a day for you guys. one day at a time and by the grace of God. Love to you all and hope the babies get better fast:)

  4. I was just going to say... sounds like you need to find a new eye doctor.
