So, after a couple of ophthalmologist appointments here and in Wichita, we are trying to patch her eyes, one at a time, daily. The hope is that this will somehow trigger something in her brain to start using her eyes together. The problem with Infantile Esotropia is that no one really knows exactly what causes it, since there are a number of factors that cause one to see how they see. Thus, there is also not a for sure "fix" for it. If patching it doesn't work, the next step will most likely be surgery on her eye muscles. But this, too, may or may not work. Many people that have this surgery have to repeat it throughout their life. Not so encouraging.
Honestly I am feeling kind of overwhelmed with thoughts of what this could mean for my sweet daughter's life. God is gently reminding me that Aliza is His daughter and that He takes care of her; that nothing here is beyond His sovereignty. But we could sure use your prayers.
~Pray that these cute little patches would work! That something in her brain would be re-triggered!
~Pray that Nate and I would choose to believe God's goodness and sovereignty and be thankful, even now.
~Pray for wisdom in whether or not to get another opinion and where to go for that.
Pray that this little cutie's eyes would be healed and work together normally!
Thanks all, just thought I would share this with blog-land because I know many of you keep up with our family this way and I wanted to keep you all posted and ask for your prayers!
