After 6 years of patching her left eye due to amblyopia and strabismus,
starting at 6 hours a day,
and 1 surgery,


We are beyond thrilled.
After the appointment with her wonderful doctor today,
(Dr. J.)
we received the best news ever.
Chloe has regained almost 100% of the vision that she lost to amblyopia.
What a blessing!
Glasses are still necessary to make sure that her brain continues to recognize that her left eye is being used.
Brains are kinda crazy sometimes.
We are thankful for this outcome.

Sophie will be the next one up for surgery.
Dr. J wants to wait until her vision is as strong as possible before proceeding with corrective surgery.
We trust him.
Most of all,
we trust our God and Savior and are praising Him today.

Psalm 119:18

Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.


  1. WOO HOO! I am so happy that she doesn't have to wear the patch anymore! She is precious and has the sweetest smile! Have a blessed day! HUGS!

  2. What a praise!! I stand amazed at what the medical community can do with the gift of intellect that that they were given by God.

    I know those eyes are bright and shiny with the news!

  3. So happy for Chloe and it the same Dr. J that did my surgeries...I always liked happy for her, and you!!!

  4. How wonderful for her - she must be beyond thrilled! Such a shame to have to cover such a beautiful eye!

  5. Kelli,
    That is wonderful news. Absolutely wonderful. I know it has been a lot of work for you to keep the eye covered, get glasses, go through surgery, keep the glasses on...proud of you and Chloe and your whole family, and thankful to God!

  6. Ohh, Kelli! What wonderful news! I am sure you are all thrilled. You did a great job making sure she got better and you should be really proud! In our weak moments, we sometimes wonder if we are doing a good job. You have proof! Have a wonderful evening.
