Very Good News Indeed


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.

Getting ready to remove the pic line







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.

@What an incredible journey you have all had. Tears of joy swell up in my heart and eyes everytime I look at your pictures and think about what all has gone on in your lives for the past 8 weeks or so. God is good and as you emerge on the other side of this ordeal I know that your faith will be stronger and He may use this for a greater purpose in all your lives. So grateful to the Lord for His mercy toward you all.

This is wonderful news! What a huge difference in the before and after pics. I didn't know anything about this until Saturday evening when I was catching up on your blog. I was so concerned and could almost feel your anxiety. God is GOOD as has already been mentioned.
