We went to the doctor yesterday hoping to get good news about Xander's eyes and head and instead it was the opposite. We knew that Xander had cataracts on his eyes but we did not even stop to think that it could be much worse. The doctor informed us that he has detached retinas and glaucoma. They are not even sure that he is getting any light in at all. The next step would be to do a test to see if the light is getting in but Tony and i have decided to wait a bit and discuss our options a little more. We are not sure if we want to put Xander through surgery's that most likely will not help. We also went to the Neuroscience's at the University and the nice doctor came in and told us that she was the wrong person to talk to and that we would need to see a Neurosurgeon. She was very kind and helpful even though she couldn't tell us much more than we already knew. With all that info i am extremely overloaded and not sure what to do. i know that i will be able to handle the situation if need be, but i am a little scared if he is going to be Deaf and Blind. I am hoping we can resolve the issue with his hearing and that we might be able to restore some normalcy. For the time being we are going to just love him as we have been and treat him as if there is nothing wrong.
Things will turn out the way they need to and Tony and i will be able to handle it accordingly
