Manga-style me

A brief update on Laurel's vision and thinking aloud about the state CHIP plan.

The school nurse checked Laurel's vision as part of her screening for services (to get her into speech therapy) and sent home a note in her daily folder on Thursday asking me to call or come in to talk to her about Laurel's vision. She did fine with both eyes (together and separately), in contrast to her October 2003 evaluation [1], but the nurse would like to have her see an eye doctor about correcting the slight turn in her right eye. I thanked her the information and told her Laurel's teacher had recommended a pediatric ophthalmology practice that I plan to make an appointment with for an evaluation.
