betsy's checkup.

*betsy’s appointment was this morning.  The Dr could tell that the eye had gotten smaller. Basically we are dealing with what he referred to as “dead eye”.  Currently he felt she was not experiencing any pain.  
*In the next couple of weeks she will be fitted for a conformer, which is a large thick blue “contact lens” that fits over the eye. This helps stimulate orbital growth, so her bones around the eye will continue to grow. Dr’s will also determine if the eye needs to come out, which then the conformer would fit over a prosthetic.

*thanks to everyone for continuing to keep betsy and the rest of our family in your prayers.
