The Eyes Have It -- February 05, 2003

Sam saw the opthamologist on Monday. It was my first solo journey with him. Jackson was having a good time with Grammie and Gramps at Legoland so, sans toddler, the oxygen and apnea monitor (oh, and the baby) were a bit more manageable. The good news is that the doctor could find no structural abnormalities with Sam's eyes. This may extend to even better news since, from my research, eye abnormalities are associated with kidney disease in people with Joubert Syndrome. We're certainly not in the clear yet but we have a bit more to be optimistic about.

if i didn't know better

had i not crested each wave of labor to your glorious
had i not been there for your debut
i would have thought you were dropped from heaven
your body damaged in the fall
but your spirit whole — big, beautiful and pure

never imagining my love to be so complete and selfless
not expecting my fierce desire to make your little body able
and perfect
or my fear to change anything
lest my meddling somehow diminish your beauty

You have captivated me
my sweet, imperfect angel
