OH my goodness,
I am exhausted but want to write to thank each of you that prayed for us today!
Today was beyond miraculous.
Parker went through about an hour of tests,
and right before they normally do dialating drops the tech said that the doctor wanted to look at Parker's eyes first.
The doctor looked a Parker's eyes for about a minute, turned to us and said, "Yep, I'm sure I've got a diagnosis."
We both just stared at him for a minute...stunned.
Then he said, "He has Albinism and it is not progressive."
Then he left the room so the tech could get the dialating started...
Doug and I stared at each other in disbelief,
then held each other and wept for joy.
I think I am still stunned.
Our little guy has a mild form of Albinism.
The vision loss he has is permanent but it should not progress any farther!
He will have some genetic testing soon to figure out what kind of albinism he has and we will start meeting with a dermatologist periodically....
we will have to be very good about sunscreen, dark glasses and hats...
but the retinal specialist?
Wants to see him back in two years!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen
