Well, we are happy tonight - this has been a great day, for at least 2 important reasons.
Reason # 1. Logan received the final doctor's ok to release him from the IV antibiotics per the good CT scan results, remove the pic line from his arm and switch to oral antibiotics for another 2 weeks. We are to see both the ENT and the Infectious Disease doctor again in 4 weeks, but for now, they are very happy with Logan's progress and are confident that the right treatment plan was found and is being pursued. After sinus/eye surgery, 2 hospitalizations, over 6 weeks of IV antibiotics and several oral antibiotics tried before that, it appears that we're winning the fight with this infection. We are so grateful to God for His touch on Logan - we know it has been His mercy that has spared Logan's eye, if not his life, due to the incredibly sensitive area the infection has been in.

Reason #2. Steve completed his first semester of Spanish language school today and Logan and he were celebrating together! Congratulations, Steve - awesome job!
Just had to compare how great his eye looks tonight with how it looked his first day in the hospital.

So here we are, infusing antibiotics for another week. He'll be on oral antibiotics for a minimum of 2 weeks after that. We're encouraged - the infection is responding and his eye looks almost completely normal.
Thanks for your love and prayers.
