This morning I opened my reader and there was an amazing post from Kate, Lucy's mom
It looks like Lucy's sight will return!! Praise God!! Please, please continue to press in with prayer. This is a miracle!
Below is taken directly from Kate's blog:
What we know:
An event happened in Lucy's body that caused 40 C (over 104.5 F) fever that persisted for more than 48 hours.
This event caused her body to shut down and the high fever is likely to have caused the seizures.
She has lost most of her ability to communicate, minus brief comments and interactions. All of which I must note are purposeful and meaningful.
We do know that her vision has been greatly impaired. We think she might be able to see something, although we are not sure what or how much. She can not make out faces and can't even tell you if you are holding up a ball in front of her face, but she seems to be tracking.
During periods of awake time she is consumed with frustration, fear and confusion. She cries for long periods of time although she does not appear to be in pain.
Theories and Facts:
The doctors are beginning to think that maybe Pink Eye led to a viral infection that leaked into Lucy's brain. Possibly through the shunt. This we will probably never know.
Today's EEG revealed NO seizure activity and NO brain damage. PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!
Today's EEG did reveal a very tired brain that had a lot of recovering to do.
The doctors do not feel as if the eye sight issues are permanent. This, however, can not be verified until an Opthamologist is able to do a thorough exam. That will probably not happen until Wednesday.
Most, if not all, of Lucy's deficits are reversible and Lucy should make a pretty strong recovery.
Please praise God with me and press in for 100% healing. It was such a blessing to see such encouragement and to hear the excitement in everyone's voice. God gives us hope and so we press in with hope that He will continue to heal Lucy and restore to complete health here on earth.
This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.
Praying and praying,
