So yesterday Kevin had a dentist's appointment. I am so sad to say that our fabulous Dr. Craig is retiring at the end of the month. We are all quite sad by this fact, but Kev and Dr C made the best of it yesterday.
Oddly enough - they both collect goofy hats. When we went back to FL, Kevin found his Bob Marley hat and knew immediately he wanted to take it and show Dr. Craig. He has been patiently waiting to go see him and the hat even beat out his iPad in importance yesterday (gasp!!). Well...you know Dr. C had to try it on, right? Here he is:
And here is a photo of the two of them.
It's just so sad to think we will probably never see each other again. The two of them just hit it off so well.
So while we were in the dentist's office, the vision impairment folks called and wanted to get together to discuss vision therapy for Kevin. Apparently they knew we were on the third floor for the dentist and wanted us to go down to the second floor when we were finished to see them. That was mighty convenient and we were happy to do so.
The gentleman that was 'seeing' Kevin did a few tests and decided to have a private firm do an evaluation to see what Kevin could benefit from. He was (at first) more interested in having Kevin learn to 'deal with' his vision impairment, but I told him that we were not going to assume that Kevin could never get his vision back. Sure, he may not, but with all the other progresses he has made, who can truly assume that he couldn't get his full vision back with a little therapy to remind the brain that he has two good eyes?
So now we wait and see when the firm will call to get the ball rolling on that too.
And we do now have an appointment with the plastic surgeon too. I think I mentioned the other day that we were going to start that process as well.
The month is filling up. Our schedule is absolutely crazy for the next few weeks and I may have to start scheduling days 'off', lol.
Although...I did get a small chunk of time to myself today. While Kevin was at therapy, I went to this little bistro that was featured a while back in the news for being such a homey place. I grabbed a cookie and a bottle of water and just sat on the couch and read for about an hour. They had jazz music playing and it really was a relaxing hour or so. I was the only person in there at that hour and I liked that too, lol. It may become my new home while Kevin is in therapy. I haven't figured out if it's worth the drive back home for the few hours he's there. We'll see, I guess...
