My dear Mom designated herself to became "the researcher" on everything we can possibly do to help Lucy ever since we got her diagnosis two years ago. She hears things, reads things and internalizes things in a way that Dave and I can't, being as emotionally tied up in the whole scope of things as we are. She recently sent me some great information from a meeting she attended put on by the Foundation Fighting Blindness. I posted it on the "I Love Lucy" blog here.
This research she sent is especially timely this week in the wake of having Lucy's new eye doctor tell us that she needs glasses. I know that there are many young children who need glasses, but for Dave and I this bit of news seems particularly ominous as we can't help but feel it is the top of a slippery slope of vision loss.
I don't know that there could ever be words eloquent or deep enough to describe how incredibly grateful I am for my mother.
