Update on Logan and Exciting Plans

First of all, we're having an awesome time with Tamra, Bryson and Jillian. It's been so much fun to have them here with us.

I took Logan to the Infectious Disease specialist yesterday as a follow-up but also to discuss what to do now that the second 6 week course of Vancomycin had almost been completed. We had kind of a weird thing happen with his PICC line on Saturday night - it fell out! - not kidding. Anyway, we survived and are without lines or IVs for the first time in weeks, even months. Logan said, "Hey I'm just a regular guy now!"

Since Logan's proptosis is improving, albeit slowly, the doctor decided to stop the antibiotics and see how his body responds on its own. He is continuing to take the anti-fungal therapy since the microbiology bloodwork results confirmed aspergillus.

When I knew that the doctor's decision only called for oral medication, I cautiously asked if there would be a problem taking Logan for a weekend trip. He said that if I continued the oral meds he didn't see any reason why I couldn't take him. So guess where we're going Friday morning? Yep - Sea Breeze Camp in Hobe Sound, Florida! I can't tell you how excited we all are. I'm so grateful to God for allowing us this blessing in the middle of what has been an exhausting and overwhelming ordeal - He is so good. But most of all, I'm grateful that Logan is improving and each step he takes toward recovery is something to be celebrated.

Continue to keep him in your prayers - this is a crucial time to see how his body will respond.

Praise the Lord for some improvement in Logan and that y'all get to go to Hobe Sound camp for the weekend! I'm sooo excited for y'all! I turned on Hobe Sound's Sunday morning service last night and listened to Marc preach while I worked. He did a good job, God helped him, and his sermon encouraged my heart.

Soooo happy for y'all! Praying for Logan!
Love, Heather
