Jenna had her follow up with Dr. Foster last Thursday. I was soooo looking forward to this appointment. At her previous appointment we had increased her MTX from .6 to .8 with the hopes that that alone would be enough to get her eyes clear. We left there with instructions to taper drops from 2x daily to 1x daily then every other day. Then stop completely 2 weeks before returning for this appointment. At first I was worried and nervous but I trust Dr. Foster. For those 2 wks I saw no squinting. No covering her eyes. No complaints of pain. It had been so long I didn't even realize that this had become "normal" for her. So I KNEW going into Dr. Fosters on Thursday that her eyes were clear. But hear! WOW! The look on his face said it all! But to actually hear the words....yeah...pretty cool. BUT...we cannot get to comfortable. We have to be VERY vigilant. You see it WILL come back. That's okay though because we beat it this time and we will beat it again. For now we will just enjoy the "quiet". :o)
