Let me start off by saying that Mickey hates his patch and they have started to get his skin irritated. He has been having headaches (the doctor said this was normal), and saying that his eye hurts (also normal as per the doc). My poor baby! But I have not caved in and kept strong on his patching the doctor told us to try and patch all day for a month and then hopefully we can ease down on patching when he starts his pre-K in August. I am keeping my fingers crossed…
I went ahead and ordered him some felt patches and hopefully we should get them by the end of the week. I hope these really work for him.
He is well aware that he has a bad eye… On Sunday night after spending a day in the pool we decided to take the boys to Dippin' Dots and the girl attending him told him “So you are a Pirate!” and he looked at her and said “NO I am a boy and this is MY eye patch because I have a bad eye” The girl was kind of embarrassed that a 4 year old just raised his voice at her and I apologized for his outburst. I guess he is just conscious that he has a condition and that the patch will hopefully get him better.
Little Luis will be leaving for PR too…. (July 3)
He will be gone for almost one month, his grandmother has just enrolled him in a summer camp and he will spend his birthday over there. I think it will be in Chuck E Cheese. It will be fun for him and he is really excited! Me on the other hand and kind of sad. I will miss him dearly and poor Mickey will be all alone with his Mommy and Daddy… I guess I will make the best of it and try to get him out as much as possible.
I will post a picture of Mickey with his new Power Patch soon!
