Another thing to be worried about

Seamus has had lots of issues in his short 3yrs 3mo of living. He had major developmental delays that we never found the answer too, pretty pad Torticollis, Plagiocephally and Macrocephally. He's improved and done better each month and finally is almost all caught up developmentally with his age group. But his behavior is worse then any 3yr old that I've seen, he has very odd quirks too. One of the quirks is, when we are talking to him or tell him to look at our eyes it always seems he's looking past us, we always thought it was a possible mild case of autism(with his other quirks it seems highly likely). But the other day when Kieran's Early Headstart FC was here, Seamus went up to her and crossed his eyes. She kind of freaked a little and asked how long hes been doing it, (now she was his FC from 1.5yrs till 3 when he aged out) and I told her for probably around a year and he thinks its funny. She said she didn't' think he was doing it on purpose all the time. She just go trained in doing quick eye exams so she took out her little light and check him for a couple minutes, sure enough hes not doing it on purpose all the time. His left eye would cross or not move as fast, really similar to a lazy eye. Now we've always been concerned about one of the kids getting this as hubby's dad has one, but we didn't know if it was hereditary or not. Our FC put in a referal to a Pediatric Ophthalmologist and Seamus is going on the 27th of October to get it checked. I'm thinking a patch will probably be what she does, but the other night we were at my moms and I told her about it, she was watching him and said ya she notices it too but they'd most likely do glasses. Either way glasses or a patch will be hard for him but hopefully we can get it fixed now.

  1. I know it can be hard to deal with medical issues when it comes to your kids. We've gone through a lot with Izzy, and I know it can be really stressful. I just wanted to let you know that you'll all be in our thoughts and prayers, especially Seamus, that whatever is wrong can be a quick fix!
