I took my kids to the eye doctor (as you probably guessed) and because of Sara’s brain stuff, the doctor wanted to do the optomap thing on her eyes. (The scan thing that lets them see inside the eye better than regular dilation.) He thought it might be good to get a baseline, since she doesn’t have any vision issues now and given that the blood vessel malformation is in the vision part of her brain.
Anyway, so they do the scan and he looks at it and says “Hmmm. In typical patients, I see about 75% the number of blood vessels in their eyes than I’m seeing here with Sara. It’s not a problem, it’s just unusual that she has so many blood vessels in her eyes.”
Chapter 508 of the book I’m going to write, entitled “Some doctor took a scan of my kid’s head and found something unusual.”
