Seeing Clearly- Praise!!!

Can I share some good news with you?
For many years (really since I was born) I have had low vision in both eyes, no sight in either eye, experiencing pain in one eye daily, retina damage, severe infection, etc.
Today after years of opth visits, 9 eye surgeries, and many glasses prescription changes- including the last one we picked up at eye masters yesterday--
I can see clearly with glasses out of both eyes and my vision is stable.
Honestly, I never thought I'd be able to see out of both eyes at the same time clearly. Thank you for praying me through this journey. Thank you for your dependability as prayer warriors in being there for all the updates and prayer requests.
There will be future lens surgeries as I have been informed the lenses will not hold- they should for 5-10 years. They may wiggle out of place due to my condition sooner than that as they have in the past. I still struggle with depth and peripheral vision loss.
But I am so thankful for today. It was beyond shocking to pick up my glasses yesterday- a full week and a half early from when they said- and need absolutely no adjusting to them. I felt so normal for once! It was plum weird, but I could get used to it!
Now on to a chiropractic appt to help me start walking again today. And next month, Mayo Clinic for the diagnosis- which John and I are claiming as a vacation!
Please know, God is so good! He has helped me see so many blessings. Vision or not!
"Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light."- Micah 7:8
Love you all dearly.
