Unique, once again

I have postponed updating the blog until we met with the third eye specialist as we are trying to get Andrea to regain as much sight as possible. The cataract eye doctor referred us to a Texas Children's Hospital eye muscle specialist. He said Andrea's case was quite unique. That is what we have been told by numerous doctors since November 2005! After receiving records from 7 eye surgeries plus the Low Vision Clinic evaluations, next month this new eye doctor wants Andrea to come in for a consultation with 5 other doctors plus "the Chief" in order to assure that she receives the best path forward. I am totally amazed when I go to these specialists and observe what they are doing to help so many people. I had never known there were so many sight impaired little children until I walked into this place. Amazing. My prayer life has certainly grown in this experience. Please keep the prayers coming. Miracles do happen!

Hi Andrea,
I'm so glad to hear about your progress, and your trip to the "specialist" eye doctors at Texas Childrens. I know it is a matter of finding the right person, who has had experience in exactly what you have going on. If it takes five or fifteen doctors, it is worth the trip. I have been through several, and feel that I am as good as I can be for the moment. That is not to say that I will stop pursuing. I am already looking forward to my potential October appointment with Dr. Koch to see about putting a lens in. Just keep up the fight. Don't ever give up.
Love,
Carolyn

Dearest Andrea, I am still praying for your complete recovery! God has something special for you. There will be and has been a lot of good come from your illness.

My Dad which is 80 years old had his house burn to the ground several months ago. He and his wife got out with only the clothes on thier backs and nothing else. With no insurance and every material thing he owned up in smoke I expected my Dad to be very upset. When I spoke with him the next morning after the fire he told me "Son God has taken care of me for 80 years and will continue to take care of me" With the help of friends family and of course our Heavenly Father my Dad is better off today. You see it took a fire for my Dad to get a blessing. Yes the Lord does work in mysterious ways. Andrea, look for your blessings. My wife and I will continue to pray for your complete recovery.

(Kathy, Thank you for the updates)

Your Brother in Christ!

Andrea, I am still praying for you and your family. I worked with your mom in Katy ISD, and I do believe she is an angel in the flesh. I look forward to more updates. Your miracles are awaiting you. Stay strong in Christ.
