Last week we skipped over the state line for another check-up on Riley's eyes. He's been doing so great that we all expected (even his doctor) to find something notably significant in the disease progression. His last injection was in July 2013, which "expired" in December of last year. It would make sense to see some damage begin to take place now. New pictures of his eye were taken last week and to everyone's delight his eye had made no change at all since February, not even the slightest change in disease progression. The doctor has been seeing Riley on a three month rotation. He was so pleased with the stability of his eye over the last few visits that he has bumped him to coming every four months. We are so grateful. God has given us a new season with these eyes.
In this new season, my Riley boy has joined Scouts. So many activities were pushed aside along the way in his childhood due to the activities or cost. Having him seeking these things out now on his own is so much fun. He's already friends with all of the guys anyway. He knows them from school, church wrestling and the local youth center. They finally convinced him to come with them for scouts too. He is all about camping and hiking right now. If he isn't outside, he's inside researching whatever new gadget he might need to make his camping even better.
Thanks for continuing to pray for this boy and his wonky eyes.
God is good, all the time!
