Vision impairment information

We have done more research concerning his vision impairment. What Elijah has is cortical visual impairment. His brain does not efficiently process what he sees, however, this does not mean he is completely blind or will be so for the rest of his life. There are therapies that can be done using color and light that can improve the vision he has. It has been described as seeing through swiss cheese, and the swiss cheese moves from day to day. There are tests I can do to see what vision he has and what I can work with. Pray for us as we learn how to help Elijah. Chances are slim he can regain all of his sight, but our God is powerful and He has brought us this far. Also, pray that he will be able to avoid some or all of the neurological problems that often accompany CVI. We know he has esophogeal reflux that is related to it, but often it comes with other problems as well. Thank you everyone for all your prayers so far and keep it up!
