Great Report

Gwyneth's doctor was very positive about her eyes, including concerning the info we shared about the things we've noticed. He again explained that it will take a little while for her brain to fully recognize the difference with her sight, and that her eyes will continue to improve as they learn to focus and move together.

Already, her right eye is nearly clear (from the bruising and bloodshot), and her left eye is beginning to clear. We no longer need to put the ointment in her eyes as we have been doing twice a day.

We are very hopeful that this will be the last of her eye problems, until her nearsightedness (from her retinopathy of prematurity) requires glasses in a year or two.

Thanks again for your encouragement and prayers about this!

Nate

I was a preemie from the early 50's who has had lifelong eye problems. I am legally blind in my left eye but my right has figured out a way to compensate. I needed glasses when I was young but parents did not have cash, so I suffered with crossed eyes for a long time too. I finally got glasses my senior year of HS. I now wear contacts and reading glasses on the computer but I wonder if surgery had been an option when I was young, if it would have been better for me. Maybe my brothers would not have been afraid to play baseball with me (I threw the bat at where I thought the ball was!) and I would beat out the bunts. The glasses sure are cuter these days for sure!! And a lot more choices too!

Awesome news. Loved your video. It's like she was in awe of everything. Now why can't we be like that every day? In awe of the world God has created. We can learn a lot from this little girl.
