A Little Improvement

After a day and a half in the hospital on 2 different antibiotics designed to treat a range of infections, we are beginning to see just a little improvement in Logan's eye - especially in the afternoons and evening. It seems that sleeping causes the swelling to be worse - not sure why yet.

He was seen by a pediatric opthamologist last night who wants to follow up with him once the antibiotics have had time to clear up the infection. He talked about a surgical procedure that may be necessary if the eye continues to run and tear. Hopefully we won't get to that point.

The pediatrician wants him hospitalized for a couple more days to observe him, put in drops several times a day and let the antibiotics she's using run their course, etc. So that's what we'll do - much to Logan's dismay. He just wants to "get out of here" - in his words.

Thank you so very much to all who have been praying: who've emailed or called to let us know. We are counting on your prayers.

Here's a few pics of his day yesterday.

Wow, such neat pictures and it's so good to see him and the boys. I am also very happy that there is a pediatric ophthamologist following him. You're on the right track. Hang in there. Our love and prayers are with you multiple times a day and night. Love you all, Mom

I have been thinking of you all a lot recently after reading your recent posts! It looks like you are in a very nice hospital! You are fortunate to have it nearby! We are hoping and praying that Logan continues to recover well and gets "out of there" quickly! :)Thanks for keeping us updated so well!

I hope he keeps improving and doesn't need the surgery. We're pulling for you, Logan!

Did you get a card reader or did someone lend you one? I'm enjoying the photos.
