Earlier today, Dr. Hinkle (Ryan’s eye doctor) came to the house to check on Ryan’s eyes. He was here early last week and observed significant improvement in both eyes. He told me he was heading to a professional seminar and would be out-of-town, but promised to stop back this week. Hmmm, an eye doctor seminar… wonder who made spectacles of themselves?
I was anxious for him to return. He has taken such good care of Ryan. Not only that, he loves talking sports! A man’s man. A card-carrying member of the He-Man’s Secret Society.
Dr. Hinkle stained Ryan’s eyes and looked at them under a blue-lighted slit-lamp. I was babbling something about something, just to ease my tension until I heard his opinion. He looks up and says, “His eyes are the best I’ve ever seen them”. Relief!
Dr. Hinkle always takes the time to show me what he sees. Teaching me. Then he sits at the kitchen table and talks me through the treatment plan, respecting my opinion and silly questions all the while. He draws me pictures!
I Take a Crack at Drawing
Remember, I am limited to drawing stick figures (women stick figures are now my new preference). But, what the heck, I might as well have a little fun with it in my attempt to communicate it to you.
So, I make my own version of the (much better) Dr. Hinkle diagram. In my own defense, mine is so much more fun… with the eyebrows, nose, and everything.
I know you won’t believe me but I did it entirely freehand. 🙂
