Update – I’m wrong, and I’m glad I’m wrong.

Remember the little boy in this post?

He’s been to his pediatrician and had his eyesight checked out. And I’m fabulously, gloriously wrong.

I can’t remember what it’s called, but his difficulty focussing amounts to a developmental delay that only affected his eyesight. The little boy will see normally, in time. He’s already focussing better than he was 3 weeks ago.

Even though I am (yay!) wrong, both the mother and I are happy I said something and that she took him to the specialist.  Her fears were soothed, her family knows what to expect and now they know how to help her little boy.

I saw a much happier, much more relaxed mum when I saw them this week. And I am so glad.

And I’m so very very glad I was wrong about my suspicions.

    What you did was right, regardless of the outcome. Glad it was not as suspected! 🙂

    You were absolutely right to speak to her about it – there was something wrong, although thankfully not as serious or long-term as you feared. She knew it, and you knew it, and it needed to be said and checked out. Good on you for speaking up!

    Good thing his eyes will get the corrective care it needs and god thing you spoke up. 🙂

    yes…I so agree….you were right to say something. Because of you they are getting answers to their most feared questions. And although you may have been wrong about what you suspected it to be (which you didn’t totally share with her — just acknowledged what she was questioning), you were not wrong in your action. They now will be able to move on in the right direction
