Against All Odds

Today I went to the eye doctor like I do every two years to make sure everything is okay with my sight. Ever since I was a kid, I had been going to an eye specialist because it was suspected that I might have glaucoma. In case you didn't know, glaucoma is an eye disorder in which the optic nerve suffers damage that damages the vision and progresses to complete blindness. Pretty scary stuff, hm? Well after years of running tests, the results have come back normal year after year and the doctor says that I don't have it! Thank god. I feel so blessed. The odds have been against me since birth and I have overcome many illnesses. From being born premature at one pound 12 ounces, getting 10 blood transfusions, and being extremely sick as a child, I survived it all. Now that I am older, it seems like I rarely get sick at all and I feel so fortunate that I developed normally and didn't experience the setbacks or disabilities I was predicted to have. God is good. :)
