“I felt so much joy, love, appreciation and thanks to God. Seeing Kaylee happy makes me happy.
“She is always an upbeat and positive person, but this made her extra happy. It was incredible to be able to look in her eyes.”
Kaylee added that she will never forget the moment doctors gave her her eyes back.
She added: “I said that, ‘I feel like I’m Kaylee again’ and Alex said ‘you’ve always been Kaylee to me’. He cried when he saw me.”
