A Wonderful Answer to Prayers!

It is with great joy that we inform you that we received wonderful news when we went to Katya's medical appointments at Johns Hopkins!

First of all, her eye specialist felt her eyes are stable and doing well. He also saw how much she has grown with having a break from surgery and decided that he was taking his recommendation from 6 months ago to have surgery on her eye "soon" off the table for now and allow her to continue to grow.

He also gave us the astonishing news that her optic nerves--which had shown visible damage from the combination of increased inter-cranial pressures prior to her skull reconstruction and starvation prior to her placement in our home in June 2011--HAVE HEALED and now look normal! This is NOT something they normally see or expect but as he put it, "we'll just go with it!" What exciting and happy news!

Then we ate lunch and went for the plastic surgery appointment. There, the hole in Katya's skull was measured and was **measurably smaller** than six months ago! Her surgeon was QUITE surprised as he had not ever expected that either! So he feels the risk of surgery try to patch the hole, to her is currently greater than the risk of leaving the now smaller hole alone. So he took his previous recommendation for surgery from the table currently now too!

Needless to say, we were about weak and giddy with relief and joy! What a beautiful answer to our prayers for wisdom and clarity! It couldn't get much plainer than that! Praise God!
