Eye Testing Over
Connie had the "spatial sweep" test done today. He looked at outlines of several objects and tracked the objects up and down. The outlines got gradually thinner. Then he went into a dark room and right before the next test began he threw up his entire feeding. Carpet and all! In that room he looked at a screen as the administrator held little characters up to keep his focus. The screen had stripes that got progressively smaller. He wore little electrodes on his scalp during this test. It took less time than we anticipated because he was able to stay focused and look for as long as she wanted him to. He didn't keep pulling off the electrodes or eye patches. Basically, he was rewarded for his cooperativeness by getting out of there early! The trip wasn't without excitement though. On the way home, a car that was about four cars ahead of us spun out on the on ramp causing everyone to slam on their brakes. That landed us half in the ditch. Luckily, we were able to back right out and no one was injured and no property damaged! That's even one more thing to be thankful for this holiday.
