About The Money Family
On January 5, 2009, Penny was born – making us the Money Family. My name is Nicole, but my Grandma always called me Nickel. My husband is Court – which my dad nicknamed Quarter. My dad actually suggested the name Penny. I don’t know if he suggested it jokingly or not, but Court and I both loved it, so Penny she is.
I have been wearing glasses since I was 8, from constantly reading without having enough light. Court was born with cataracts that were removed when he was 3 weeks old. Back then though, they didn’t do intraocular lens implants that young. He had to wait until he was 14 for his implants. Now, we passed on our “blindness” to Penny. At 5 weeks old we found out that she has bilateral congenital cataracts.
I am planning to use this blog to document what happens to Penny and her beautiful little eyes.
