*First off thank you for everyone's prayers for Betsy this week. We appreciate it!
*We dropped ek and max at grampy and mimi's and headed up to k.c. A quick stop for dinner, some shopping at Dick's Sporting goods and then finally to bed.
|deal of the day: Buy 1 soccer ball, get 1 betsy|
*The next day started off with a visit to Bud (the ocularist), he used wax to build up and enlarge her existing conformer. Then after making sure the fit was correct, made a mold out of it for her new one. It was amazing how much the larger conformer opens up her eye. We had several breaks while he worked on the new conformer. So we spent some time at target.
*After my initial disappointment (yes there were tears) we decided that staying another night in K.C. (in a great place that our friends kindly let us use) with only 1 child. Well, there are worse things. :)
|WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO NEW EYE TODAY?|
|when you sleep in until 8, you get donuts. rock.on.|
*Bud was kind enough to squeeze us in the next day to paint her conformer. It only took him 15 minutes, yes 15 minutes to paint it to match her other eye. (seriously shouldn't it take like 5-6 hours?)
The conformer had to cure for an hour, so we went back to Dick's sporting goods to try out some sleds.
*It is so amazing. I find that it's hard to put into words. wow. This is such a neat early birthday gift for our precious pirate princess.
