I know I'm super late but we have some WONDERFUL news! On August 15th, we had an appointment with Dr. Wilson at 2:45 pm. I was so nervous, but I knew that Sawyer had been seeing more and I was SO excited to see what Dr. Wilson had to say about it. We got there a little late (thank you Charleston traffic) and luckily Dr. Wilson still had time to see us. Shortly after signing in we got called back and our visit began. Dr. Wilson came in and asked us what we had been seeing as far as improvements and we went on to tell him that he had been staring at reds, and he had been looking at us every now and then and when we would put him in the sun light he would squint so hard as if he we're trying to shut his whole eye from the bright sun. Dr. Wilson then proceeded to look into Sawyer's eyes at his optic nerves and told me something I thought I would never hear. He went on to tell us that Sawyer's optic nerves we're very pink (meaning they had blood flow/alive) and they had gotten a little bigger than before (still super tiny, but bigger). I was estatic, he also went on to tell us that when he examined his eyes last visit his optic nerves we're whitish (meaning dead/dying off) and that he noticed Sawyer would show interest when he would cut the lights off and on. This was glorious news!
With that being said we go back November 15th and we are SO excited to see what Dr. Wilson says then! We we're not expecting to see any progress so this is like Christmas for us! We are so happy that our baby boy can see more than what was said, and even though he still qualify's for legally blind he can SEE more!!!!
Our God is SOOOO good, and I give all of the glory to him!! We are so thrilled and we know that this is just the start of Sawyer's journey and his story is yet to come!
With that said, enjoy some pictures of my little fella!
(at our wedding... more pictures to come!)
(excuse his bruises, he's my little banana)

Hope you all are having a great week!
