Well, Logan didn't get to come home from the hospital today - he is more than sad about it. His CT scan done this afternoon showed that while the cellulitis around his eye had improved, the abscess under his eye had not - even with 6 days of strong antibiotics.
We're not exactly sure what the next step is....whether the opthamologist will do a surgical procedure to drain the abscess, whether an ENT will get involved, etc. Logan's group of hospital pediatricians do not want to release him until this is solved, but since it's getting a little complicated, more time on IV antibiotics is the least that we'll have to look forward to - and more than likely a procedure of some kind in the next couple days.
Just to be very honest, we're discouraged....but we do know that God is in control and He is watching over Logan very carefully. Marc and I are doing our best as his parents: taking turns overnight in the hospital, trying to keep him entertained, being there with him as new IVs are inserted when old ones blow the veins.....but we as parents can only do so much and believe me, we feel our limitations very keenly tonight.
But God is Logan's Heavenly Father - He is watching intently and has Logan in His hands. We trust Him that He knows best - we just are asking Him to give us strength to come through this time, trusting more in Him and seeing that He knew best all the time.
Thank you again for your love and prayers for Logan - it is so encouraging to us to know you're praying.
p.s. these Lightning McQueen "jammies" really cheered him up - he LOVES anything and everything "Cars"related....
