Why do I have two toys, mom??

That's what I was asked by Keith on Friday. No, he doesn't only OWN two toys, he meant "why when I look at my one toy do I see two of them?" I, being the good mother I am, said "what are you talking about? It's bedtime!" And then on Saturday he asked the same thing, And asked why there were two TVs. And two fireplaces. And two of Caroline... You see where I'm going with this?? So, after trying to ascertain if he was fooling around or if he really WAS seeing double, Ed and I decided that it really did appear that he was seeing more things than he should be. Add in a pretty much constant headache for the boy since the start of the new year, and we headed off to the doctor's office this morning. Of COURSE, once there, she can't find anything wrong with him. His vision appears to be perfect, but he insists that he sees two of everything. Like when the doctor held up 3 fingers and asked how many, he promptly answered six. He is a math whiz, but I'm really hoping he knows better than to try to show off his mad skillz at the doctors. Anyways, she referred him to a neurologist and an ophthalmologist to see if they could find anything wrong with him. So tomorrow morning we head off to the neurologists. Fortunately, the neurologist is not located at AI DuPont - I've about had it with that place. I'm convinced that my children are fine and just have random symptoms which need a really expensive test to determine that they mean nothing, but still - if I didn't get the tests done and something WAS wrong I'd feel pretty crappy, know what I mean?? So, if you'd keep my little man in your thoughts tomorrow I'd appreciate it! I hope we can either figure out what is up with his vision or it quickly resolves! Maybe loose teeth cause double vision? Wouldn't surprise me, knowing my luck with children and expensive tests!

I think you are doing the right thing Amy. A headache like that isn't anything to mess with especially when it's associated with vision problems.
I will keep checking for updates.

I would be doing the same thing Amy, expensive tests and me fretting about paying for them even with insurance........but knowing you have to do it for your babies.
I'll be thinking of you and your sweet Keith. I'll be checking in.
