Good news!!

I took Little Sister (aka "A") back to her eye specialist today and the vision in her eye has greatly improved!! I was so nervous about going there today since we got bad news last time we went. The results in a nut shell are that 6 weeks ago her left eye was at 20/200 and her right was 20/30. Today her left eye was 20/60 and her right was 20/30!! That is a huge improvement in just 6 weeks! God is so good! We are to continue patching at the same rate we have been (8-10 hrs per day) and then go back in 6 weeks for another check. At that point the doctor will be willing to re-assess the patching and maybe scale the hours back some! Thank you so much for all your prayers! It is so good to have friends who are interceding on your behalf!

I don't know the whole story behind A's eyes, but this update is fabulous!!!! We've had to take our little one (16 months old) to the eye doc since she was born...she was a 9 week preemie with all sorts of issues. Her eyes are doing better, too ... so I completely understand the excitment! Praise the Lord! He is so good! Thanks for sharing the wonderful news...it's so encouraging!

We are happy Julie! Thank you so much!

Thanks Melody! I try to tell all of my friends to get their kids eyes checked at an early age, you just don't know.

A was not a premmie, we don't know the reason she has Amblyopia, but she does, God has a plan for her life!
