Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI)

What is Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI)?

It is what my child has been diagnosed with.

The medical term is

  • a form of vision impairment that is caused by a brain problem rather than an eye problem.  CVI is caused by any process that damages the visual parts of the brain.

So, this means basically that Brent is blind.  Blind only in his right eye so I am thankful that he still can see good in his left eye.  With the diagnosis, comes Vision Therapy!

Budd-Chiari Syndrome

BuddChiari syndrome is a very rare condition. It is an uncommon condition induced by thrombotic or nonthrombotic obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow and is characterized by hepatomegaly, ascites, and abdominal pain. It is caused by blood clots that completely or partially block blood flow from the liver. It usually occurs when a clot narrows or blocks the hepatic veins, which carry blood out of the liver.

My Kind Of RARE

 Loving2016-02-09 17.05.06 someone who is RARE is a precious honor.  I am thankful God has given me the privilege to love 2 special RARE people in this life.  This RARE condition is a Chromosome and Neurological Disorder called L1 Syndrome. The ins and outs of daily struggles makes it worthwhile when the smallest little grin comes across their face or hearing the laughter and seeing the silly faces they make when they think no one is watching or listening or even signing a new sign after teaching it to them over and over and over again and you feel like your not winning this battle and all of a sudden…. he signs….

Blind

I think I am drowning in my own sorrow.  I’m the lady who can handle everything that comes her way…. ya, NOT so much! I am drowning.  I pick myself up off the ground every single day hoping that I have made some sort of difference in a person’s life.  My son’s life. His life matters! Brently’s life does matter!  He has a purpose! God says he does. (Jer. 29:11)

“In The Garden”

This was an amazing night.  Several Southern Gospel Groups, including Saving Faith (the group I sang with), got together and had a benefit singing to raise money for the David Zills Memorial Fund for ALS.   I enjoyed singing with Broken Vessels that night several years ago.  I came across this video and wanted to share.
