Luukas update

It's been a while since we've had any updates on Luukas. He continues to show signs of improvement. Thanks be to God for the miracle that is Luukas. If you aren't familiar with his story, Luukas lives in Finland and became very ill soon after birth. At one point his doctors did not expect him to live. His story sparked off a wide spread prayer campaign and those prayers have largely been answered as Luukas pulled through the darkest days and his condition improves all the time. Luukas will have many struggles in life but he has already shown himself to be quite the fighter and an inspiration to many. Click on the label at the bottom of this post to learn more about Luukas. And please, remember him and his family in your prayers.

Latest news from Luukas's mom:

Luukas went to see his eye doctor and his neurologist last week. They were both very happy and say that Luukas has progressed, both physically and with vision. Of course his vision is still very little, but better than before. And of course he is still behind with movements and has muscle tense problems, but there has been progress. A thing that worries me, though, is his eye and head movement that looks like epilepsy and takes place many times per day. Especially that with the development of the brain, epilepsy might also progress.

Luukas was at a course for babies with poor or no vision two weeks ago. It lasted for five full days. It was very nice. They have a swimming pool where we can now go with Luukas on Saturdays.

Luukas will get glasses this week, because he is very near sighted. This is the least of his vision problems, but glasses should improve his seeing anyway. He will look sweet in those round blue glasses Very happy childish looking
