Another wonderful day at therapy! 
Christy went to her second eye appointment with Dr. Keltz.  This is a second (different) eye doctor. Don and Christy had to leave Craig to go see him.  It was about 20 minutes away (driving).  This first picture is a picture at the auto refkeratometer.  This eye machine measures the curvature of the cornea.  It's looking at the extent  of astigmatism.  You've probably heard of a Astigmatism before.  It's an optical defect in which vision is blurred due to the inability of the optics of the eye to focus a point object into a sharp focused image on the retina.  This was done because this is what Christy has been having a hard time dealing with.  We need to find out more information on the entire injury.  If you look at the smaller picture of Christy, you'll see that her eye is being displayed.  The machine even prints out a paper report with a quick description of Christy's eye.  

This picture is of those funky eye tools that measure which lens you can see best with.  This is how they determine what kind of glasses and prescription lenses will be the most effective!   They have to test out what lens may work for her.  We need to improve Chrsity's vision still. Day by day. Each day will hold more and more mini-successes moving towards seeing clearly again.

Christy is keeping her good spirits up.... in this picture with Don, Christy is 
sanding strait at the ballerina bars.   Love it!!  Christy gets bored just standing in the ballerina bars, so they decided to plug Chris into her ipod. Christy started to dance and the therapist and her doctor came out and watched and encouraged her!  It was fun for everyone!!  Christy sure has a lot to dance about!!  All of Christy's hard work and determination is paying off in flexibility and progress in therapy.  
I like this picture of Don and Christy because it's sweetly genuine!  We can only wish you smiles and happiness and we're so happy that you are finding joy in your therapy!  Having fun while you work will only make the journey easier and happier! 

 Until tomorrow!
