Well it’s been 2 weeks and fortunately we have more good news. We had our first appointment with the opthalmologist, and she was delighted to find Nathan’s vision intact. She examined his eyes, dilated his pupils, and found his retina and other eye structures functioning well.

She needs to continue checking him to determine if malformations in his brain will affect his vision, as sometimes the eye is perfect but the brain can’t interpret the information. However, she is hopeful and seems to think everything works well for now, so she encouraged us and told us to hope for the best.

Other than that, we are just taking things a day at a time. For now he is a normal baby, and we are learning how to take care of him and what works for him.

We had an interesting experience with him the other day. We were driving home, and there was an accident on the freeway that had just happened. A car was on fire, and there were a couple of people on the ground on the freeway who were obviously injured. Nathan was sleeping in the car, but when we arrived near the accident scene, he woke up and started screaming. We couldn’t get him to calm down, he just cried and cried for quite a long time after.

We think maybe he perceived the energy of the accident. We had never seen him cry that intensely, and he was inconsolable.

As the days go by we are realizing he is a very very sensitive person, he picks up people’s energies very clearly and it affects him.

On another note, we are going to start with a child development therapist next week, someone is going to come twice per week to work with him. We are very excited.

Thank you for your continued prayers and for continuing to be involved in Nathan’s life.
