Long Day

Yesterday was quite the long day. Amidst all the regular therapies, we saw William's eye doctor and found out what we really already knew. William's visual acuity is somewhere between 20/400 to 20/700 with best correction. Basically that just means he's legally blind. On the upside, his right eye seemed stable and maintained it's vision over the last 3 months. His left eye, however, was slightly worse. He is doing very well and compensates nicely. I am so thankful that we chose to have his implants when we did. I can't imagine him not being able to hear OR see. He really uses his sense of hearing and relies on it heavily. He uses either the sound of my voice or touch to find me. Again, very thankful for Cochlear Implants.

  1. Thank goodness the right eye is staying stable, and I am so glad he has the ability to hear with his CI's - you were wise to get his early! Bless him- I will say a prayer for his eyes, that they stabilize so he can use what remaining vision he has.
