Thanks for visiting us on our adventure through eye surgeries, patching practice and food allergies!
Our beautiful warrior is Olivia Reese. In January of 2018, at only 3 months old, she was diagnosed in her right eye with a rare condition known as Persistent Fetal Vasculature (PFV). As parents, my husband and I were a total mess and spent the next few days scouring the internet to find as much information as possible in order to better understand her condition. There was nothing! Not only is this new world of eye conditions was confusing, scary, and most of all hard to find information about. At 8 months old, Olivia was diagnosed with severe food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, dairy and wheat. This was yet another scary world we were thrown into that we knew nothing about.
We are not doctors, but we hope that our blog, the information we have found and learned about, and the blog posts that our family posts can be of help to anyone else who finds that their child is diagnosed with PFV, dangerous food allergies or any, rare condition.
