Despite understanding why the author of the text could see Christina’s case as both success and failer, I don’t agree with his opinion. The situation she found herself in, sounds extremly challenging and I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for her. Her condition was not something a lot of people came across at that times and I imagine that not a lot of them would even know what to do in her place. The fact that she learned how to oparate her body using her vision and how to live her live, despite all the challenges she was facing on a daily basis, is truly incredible. It’s true that she never “got her body back” but I wouldn’t call the way she learned how to functionate with her condition a defeat.
