Abi Update

I've updated on Facebook, but not here, and since not all my blog readers are on FB, I realized I need to put something here too. 

It's been a week since Abi's eye bleed happened. The ophthalmologists and we all agreed that the only thing we can do is wait and see if it clears out. 

So far, she reports that bright light looks red (seen through the blood) which indicates that her retina has not detached. That's good. But the blood is blocking her little scrap of sight, so she can really see nothing at all. 

She has adjusted remarkably well. After the first sad day, she has returned to being cheerful and chattery. We do a lot of problem-solving, like labeling her markers in Braille so she can still color pictures. 

She rode her bike, jumped on the trampoline (I know, perfect thing to do when your eye is bleeding), and has run around and done her chores like nothing is amiss. She is a little slower and runs into a few more corners is all.
