WONDERFUL NEWS!!!! We have been waiting to blog about this until we had an appointment with Cash's ophthalmologist who has been following him since birth. We saw him this morning and he was very impressed with Cash's vision! He read us his notes from back in April when he saw Cash right before we went to China, which said "Despite many attempts, I cannot convince myself that Cash has any light perception whatsoever." Now, 2 months after stem cell treatment began, he said not only does Cash have light perception, he has a step above that called light projection. Light projection means that he can identify the area in which the light is being shined. He said he can obviously see an improvement and he is very pleased with it. He wants to send an email to a doctor we saw before that was kind of discouraged with our decision to take Cash for stem cells. He wants the doctor to know what he has seen! He ended by telling us that he thinks the future of Cash's vision definitely lies within stem cells. This treatment is so new and it's only getting better and better. Cash's vision can now improve for up to a year on this treatment alone. There are several children that have gone back for a 2nd or even 3rd trip, receiving better results everytime.
I know that any of this wouldn't be possible without our amazing God who makes anything possible! He definitely has favor for our sweet little Cash and continues to show us everyday just how much of a miracle he really is! I also really want to just tell all of you THANK YOU so much!! To each one of you that donated to Cash, or that had a hand in helping in any way, you were all a part of a true miracle, and it just doesn't get any better than that! :) We love you guys so much! We are wanting to go back to China maybe next year, or just whenever we can save enough/raise enough to go back. We, along with his doctor, are so encouraged by what we have seen and it can only get better and better.
