Here's my little guy, looking kinda rough. This was the first pain he's felt throughout this ordeal - made me feel so bad. The incision that was made inside the inner part of the eye socket was hurting him. But although last night was full of "sticks" (as he says) - blood being drawn to measure antibiotic levels - he had a good day today and outside of a puffy eye, he looks great.
The ID specialist confirmed the treatment course - a minimum of 6 weeks IV antibiotics, administered through a PICC line that will be reinserted on Monday. Then we'll reevaluate and see how the infection is responding. Weekly follow-up in her office is also part of the plan.
The ENTs/surgeons are happy with how Logan looks today - they expect his eye to be puffy for up to a week as the operation site heals. If all goes well, Logan may be able to go home from the hospital on Monday afternoon.
I am so thankful for the wonderful, compassionate, and skilled team of doctors and nurses to whom God has led us.
I am also so thankful for the hundreds of family and friends who have contacted us to let us know they're praying. I believe I can say that we feel every prayer. God is just pouring out His strength and grace on us right now - in the middle of our concern, we feel a deep peace that we are completely in the center of His will, and held securely in the palm of His hand.
We are thankful that "Uncle" John Parker has come down to be with us during this time. He has been such a support and a pastor to us when we have needed it. Check out this huge fruit and candy basket he provided for us!
So thankful, too, for our loving family, the Stetlers, who have supported and held us up, filling in the gaps with hours of childcare, meals, listening ears, prayers, love, afternoons spent at the hospital playing games with Logan, and so much more.
