Doctor No. 2 -- the pediatric opthamologist

The doctor agrees that Katie has very limited vision, that she sees only the brightest of lights. Upon examination of her eyes, the doctor says that the problem is not one that can be remedied by glasses, nor is it something like cataracts that can be corrected by a simple surgery. She suspects that the problem is in the area of the retina, so Katie is scheduled for an ERG (electroretinography) Monday afternoon at 3:00.

In the meantime, Beth, Tim, and Katya are at Beth's parents' house in Garland with her sister Ruth and her year-and-a-half old twins. Tim is having fun playing with his cousins and spending time with his grandparents and aunts and uncles. The Christmas tree went up Friday night, and Tim was in awe.
