Eye, Skin and to PA Again

Judah and I met with his opthamologist last Wednesday, and overall we were very pleased with what she had to say. She said Judah's vision is intact and in fact a little better than before the eye surgery in May. His eye lid is still only half open, but she didn't have a good idea as to why. She recommended patching the "better" eye, working up to two hours a day. (We're currently hitting closer to a half hour a day) And, while there was mention of putting Judah in glasses, she feels there is no need to do that right now. Thank you, Lord, for one less thing to worry about! :)

Judah's laser treatment went well; although, he developed some bruising this time on the area treated. It makes his skin look a bit worse than before the treatment, but the bruising will go away with time. And, I'm told it doesn't hurt him. I'm always so grateful for the laser nurse, Judy, who makes our visits just about as pleasant as they can be. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job than she does with the kids.

We're heading to Pennsylvania this weekend for Bri's brother's wedding, our fourth trip "home" this summer. It may be the first time some of Bri's family will meet Judah and Tucker!

Please pray that:
  • Judah will cooperate with the eye patching and that the patching will have its desired effect.

Please thank God with us that:

  • We see such wonderful medical staff who make our frequent visits as pleasant as they can be

Hey Bri, it's Beth! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this page! It's great to be able to keep up on Judah and his visits, and how God is working in the lives of all those involved.
