Taking son to mayo this month

Lately I have been wondering why these doctors were so focused on my son's optic nerves. I don't know what it means if an optics nerve is swollen or doesn't look normal. They said it could be like Down Syndrome eyes. But they don't know. So I thought it was a nice appointment. But I don't even know if I am supposed to be worried.

@ihatediabetes, rather than be worried, I might suggest you ask questions on the patient portal. Ask them why they are being vigilant about the optic nerve and what it might indicate. Additionally, I would ask how you can help. What might you keep a look out for?
Getting a follow-up appointment in 3-4 months is also a good time to ask questions.

@frank, welcome back the Mayo Clinic Connect. Yes, a lot has changed since you were here last. Have a look around. Let me know if there is a group or discussion topic I can help you find.
