Dear Family and Friends,
First, this is Marc. Melodie is at the hospital with Logan and does not want to leave him. So I am taking her usual place at the keyboard writing this update.
Logan came through surgery well today. The surgeons are confident that they have sufficiently "opened him up" so that he will not collect infection or fluid in and around his eye anymore. On a more sobering note, he has officially been diagnosed with MRSA, hence the 3 month battle with this infection. The Infectious Disease docter came in prior to surgery and indicated that Logan might be placed back on long term antibiotics again through a PICC line.
She even went so far as to suggets we look for long-term housing options here on the border while Logan is battling this infection. Hopefully, we will know more later on today or tomorrow when she speaks with us again.
She is going to consult with the ENT's who performed the surgery to get their perspective before deciding on a course of action for our little boy. We have never faced anything quite like this long and draining ordeal and there is really no clear hope that it will end soon but the words of the Apostle Paul came to my mind just a minute ago: "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed, perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken, cast down but not destroyed."
I know you all have faithfully prayed for Logan and all of us. Words cannot not adequately express our sincere and profound thanks and love we have for each of you.
