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!

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)

God’s Plan

Today has been another “ok” day.  Brent is so ready to get back in the swing of things with going to school and doing his routine.  He loves a schedule and if it gets off track, he does not like it. He is thriving and I am so happy for him that he is still fighting his disability He is one tough teenager!

Hope Anchors The Soul

I am numb.  I don’t have any words of wisdom or encouragement for myself or to give anyone this very minute. My brain is trying to stay positive but in my heart I know that another battle is about to begin.  I know God will be with me through this. There is no doubt about that. I am just scared.  We received some bad news and I am having a hard time taking it all in.

Aphasia

a·pha·sia is the loss of ability to understand or express speech, caused by brain damage.
Aphasia gets in the way of a person’s ability to use or understand words. Aphasia does not impair the person’s intelligence. People who have aphasia may have difficulty speaking and finding the “right” words to complete their thoughts. They may also have problems understanding conversation, reading and comprehending written words, writing words, and using numbers.
