We want to make sure everyone understands this is something we might need to do several times… You have to realize that these treatments are first going to work on the inside wiring, the optic nerve . Optic nerves have about 1.1 million nerve cells each and we do not know what specific nerves are/aren’t developed. As we said before Doug currently responds to light a lot! His pupils dilate according to the light in the room just like they should which is already AMAZING NEWS! With each treatment you can get results up to about a year after. We could see no results until 8 months from being back or maybe see results with the first treatment. It works differently with each person. We can only hope things work for the best and he could be reaching out for toys before we come home! We will continue to raise money to keep going back as we need to until there are no other possible results he could have! We want him to have x-ray vision when we are done, hehe!
Dougie keeps heading in the right direction. The other day he caught glimpse of a shadow on the wall from the ceiling fan, then tried to reach out and grab what he was seeing. We couldn’t believe our eyes, even started to cry a bit! Just another example of how much we don’t know, when it comes to his vision! He recently started with the, I get into every, and ANY, thing I can get my hands on! He is moving all over the house and we love love love it. Though it will sure get super old in a week! Haha
We want to thank everyone who is helping us get the word out, and also specifically thank those who have gone above and beyond, and started their own little way to help us get as much money donated as they can! Words can’t describe how much it really means to us!
