Seeing clearly

Victor had another torture session with the pediatric ophthalmologist yesterday.  It's so bad the doctor himself used the word torture.  I have to admit that I'm not sure I would handle it well myself.  Once again Victor has proved himself a fighter as the doctor kept hoping Victor would tire himself out and stop moving his head.

He still has some Stage 1 ROP but the doctor is not concerned about it, believing that it will continue to resolve on its own.  He is concerned, however, about Victor's sight.  Please join us in praying for Victor's eyes.  We are praying that the exam in 2 weeks (yes, they are going to torture him again in two weeks) will show nothing of concern.  John's prayer last night included the prayer that Victor won't even need glasses.  We want him to clearly see his loving friends and family so we covet these prayers. We know that it is the prayers of all of you that has brought him to where he is today.  Let's pray sight to his eyes.

Victor with his great grandmother
HopeAnne loves to mother him (or is it smother?)


  1. Look at Mom-Mom. She is so proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Sofia was #17....I am curious, 10 years later, as to what # Victor is? I love how our family has grown in leaps and bounds. Prayers always for Victor and our whole family!

  2. Praying for healing for Victor in Jesus precious sweet name.
