& # 39; Great announcement! After 2646 hours of patching, [three] operations and too many drops to count, our girl is finally ready, & Jessie wrote down Facebook.
& # 39; Follow-up visits happen, but the sight in her injured eye is 20/25 and now remains stable for a year! & # 39;

Speak against Good morning America, Jessie said: & # 39; I asked [Aliyah] who she wanted to be and she said: & # 39; a superhero! & # 39;
& # 39; I became emotional because it was a long journey. That was the last time she took off her patch. & # 39;

& # 39; It was hard not to lose hope, & # 39; Jessie said about the turbulent time.
& # 39; Every time she had an extra step from a different field of view on that map, it was such a relief. & # 39; n
