Thank you so much to all of you who have tirelessly been praying for me! It is so touching to be so loved by each one of you.
I wanted to let you know that I am indeed seeing some improvement in my vision. On Tuesday, I was completely blind in my left eye. Today, I can see some shadows and shades of gray at short distances. The team of doctors treating me were very encouraged on Friday when they saw the rapid progress I had made.
I thank God that today is my last intravenous treatment, and that I will now be taking three weeks of a much lower dose oral treatment which should have very few side effects. We are looking forward to getting home sometime this coming week but will return in a few weeks to see the Dr.
If you would like to pray for me specifically today, you can ask our loving and gracious Father to help me focus on each day as it comes. Right now, two weeks from now, or even tomorrow is just too overwhelming to think about. One thing I do know is that His grace is sufficient FOR TODAY! So pray I will dwell there.
You can also pray for the process of regaining sight. We are so thankful for any improvement, but it seems like the more I see out of that left eye, the more disoriented I become. Pray that I will slow down, be gracious with myself and not expect too much and also that I will not be fearful in public when there is much noise and activity surrounding me.
God is so gracious and kind, and His love has been poured out upon us. We are truly grateful to Him and to each one of you for your part in carrying us through this journey. You are very loved.
