“Why did it happen to her, why her?!?”
..that was the first question my sister asked upon knowing the condition of her one month old baby. Her right eye was not fully developed and there’s no chance for her to regain it; even the transplant is not an option, the saddest part of it was, according to her ophthalmologist there is a tumor and if proven to be malignant, the only possible solution is to enucleate her eye.
I am in no position to tell her that everything will be fine cause apparently, it will never be fine and for a first time mother, it is unacceptable because she took care of her while she was still in her womb and yet the outcome is just ….unacceptable.
Upon reflecting on things, we realized that no matter what her condition is, SHE is still a GIFT from GOD. We prayed and prayed not to question Him but to ask for solutions, to seek for His guidance and for forgiveness for acting rude and for questioning HIm of why her and not the others.
…. She just had her ultrasound, and thank God, that it is not a tumor, but just a cyst that needs to be monitored time to time. Although it is a fact that her right eye is blind, and there is cyst that needs to be monitored on a regular basis, it is also a FACT that GOD never ceases to hear our prayers and He gives His blessing in times when we needed it most.
