The news isn't horribly grim. It just isn't great. Nathan's lazy eye seems to get be getting slightly worse and the eye doctor wants him to wear a patch on it. Not a pirate patch but an adhesive bandage that seals off the light.
You are thinking, "play the pirate game!! Argh!!"
No dice. He doesn't care if pirates wear eye patches and are cool. He doesn't want to wear the eye patch.
We told him that it was special and just for him. It was something even his brother Ethan didn't have. You know, playing on that middle child syndrome. He didn't care. He doesn't want to wear the eye patch.
The doctor says so? Who cares?
I'm the mom and I am telling you to wear it? Nope.
Any child who will go out in public looking like this is certainly not going to give his mother's demands a second thought.
I bow to you, great Internet. The story on the street is that if this doesn't get fixed, he could actually go blind in that eye. No one wants to be the mom who made her kid go blind. Tell me what solutions you have to offer to get him to wear the patch for one hour a day, three days a week.
Help me please.
