Great News!!! If Tracy gets nose to nose with Madison, SHE CAN SEE HER!!! It is in black and white, but she can see her! Hopefully it will be like the Equal Box and she will be able to see her at a little greater distance each day!!! Thanks God!!! Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy is the same today. Which means that she can still see Madison if she holds her nose to nose! Please Keep Praying!

BTW, I had a nice visit with Brad down at Fort Hood Saturday. He lives off base, but he drove me around the base, including the area where that coward killed his fellow solders a few years ago. They have that area fenced off with pictures of the deceased hanging on the fence. Brad knew one of the ladies because she worked across the street from him! The lady that Brad knew was pregnant at the time of her death!

He had also met the man that did the killing!

Tracy's eye sight is about the same today as it was yesterday. She can't tell how far Madison is from her face when she sees her, I will check that later. Tracy is not having anymore visions in the morning because the pressure has went down. I'm not sure which pressure. It would seem to me that she would have more visions if the pressure went down, but that is not the case. Of course, not having visions and being able to see Madison close up did occur at the same time! Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy's vision is better today!!! She can see Madison at 18 inches from her face now!!! Up from about 9 inches yesterday! She can also read the EQUAL Box at seven feet today! Plus, she was able to see the cream floating on top of the coffee today as she filled her cup! Normally she has to stick her finger in the cup to know when it is full. Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy is about the same today as yesterday. We took Madison for a doctor's appointment today. Tracy is able to see the colors of various different color vehicles, as well as their outlines. Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy is seeing better today! She fixed Madison's bottle and some other thing around the house that she has not been doing. They are out and about now, just doing some things they enjoy! This is the first time for she has been out for enjoyment in a couple of months! Any other times that she has left the house has been because either her or Madison had a doctor appointment. Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy is seeing a bit better today! While she has been able to see Madison or anyone else if they were directly in front of her and within a 18 inches or so, she was not able to see Madison while she fed her due to the angle of vision. Today she can see her while she feeds her!!! She can also see someone standing in front of her depending on the light source. She sees better in a white light type setting. She sees less in a bright sunlight type setting.

Please Keep Praying!!!

Tracy went to the eye specialist today and things continue to look better! She could read all five letters on the 20/80 line with her right eye today, up from just two last week. She could read several letters with her left eye, but couldn't remember how many. BTW, it was the right eye that lost all light sensitivity for a while when she was in the hospital. It is actually better than the left eye at this time! After her eyes had been dilated, they decided to do a regular eye exam like the one done to fit eye glasses. It is best to do the exam before the eyes are dilated, but at any rate, they have seen fit to bring her back in Friday for another eye exam. It appears that they may be headed toward fitting her with corrective lens. Tracy don't think that corrective lens would come close to giving her normal vision, but they certainly may allow her to see a lot more than she does now! She has no blurred vision, but just sees white dots at times. Apparently this is a focus problem and can be addressed with corrective lens. Her eyes continue to improve! Maybe, she will require several pair of corrective lens while she arrives at what ever level of eye sight she will have in the end. We still remain confident, that while she may not have the perfect vision she had before this all started, it will be good enough to lead a normal vision life! Please Keep Praying!

Tracy says that she is about the same again today! But, when we took Madison to the doctor today, she did not have to be led to the car, she walked into the doctor's office unassisted, back out to the car and into her house! That is the first time I have seen her do those things without being led by the hand most of the way! She could read the EQUAL box at nine feet today! Please Keep Praying!!!
