Update on Zach: Praise and Surgery

A couple of weeks ago, we took Zachary to his developmental check-up appointment. It was the last of 3 appointments we had spanning the course of 18 months.

We were so grateful to hear he's doing phenomenal! Not only physically but cognitively and mentally as well. He impressed the occupational therapists and doctors with just how far he's really come. Technically, he's a 22 month old but in reality, they were looking to see if he was developmentally on track for a 19 month old, since he was born 3 months premature.

They said he was not only on track, but he has now SURPASSED some of the milestones of a 24 month old. Basically, he's all caught up!

Hallelujah!! God is so good.

This kid had so much going against him early on in his life but God, He wasn't done with him yet!

Today, we are all as smitten as ever with our miracle boy.

He's a very active, smart, playful, joy-filled toddler who makes our days sweeter and reminds of the goodness of God.  


Surgery: another hurdle to overcome...

For the last year, we've been patching Zach's right eye (his stronger one) for 2 hours each day. At the moment, this is the only time he ever wears his glasses. We patch in order to make his left eye (the weaker one that drifts) stronger. The day has come where his left eye is finally strong enough to have corrective eye muscle surgery.

If you think about it on Thursday morning, please keep Zach in your prayers.

One thing's for sure, he is one tough kid and he's no stranger to overcoming obstacles. We know the Lord will watch over Him and we trust Him for a successful surgery, according to His will and His perfect plan for our boy.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
