Eye Surgery

On Monday we found ourselves in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Philip's Eye Institute for a consultation with the Specialist about Ezra's eyes and a surgery.  After examining both eyes the Dr. decided to operate first on the right one.  One of the nurses gave Ezra a teddy bear.  He really liked the bear and was smiling and "talking".  
After the surgery Ezra wasn't so happy! Poor boy!  It took a while for him to come out from the effects of the anesthesia and calm down. The Dr. said his eye is healthy and he should be able to see with glasses!!  We praise the Lord Jesus for that. Surgery on the second eye is scheduled for September 9th.

Ezra's eyes

For those who may not have heard Ezra was born with cataracts in both eyes.  This morning he was to have one removed but after a thorough eye exam under anesthesia the surgeon decided to send us to a pediatric eye specialist. So at this point we are waiting to be rescheduled. Ezra is high risk for glaucoma as well.  He responds to light but as far as we know he doesn't see much else.

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works." 
Psalm 139:14

Family Reunion

I know.... you can't believe I'm actually posting something!  Well, life has been FULL!  I won't even try to "catch up".  We did enjoy a family reunion this past week-end at our house.  It was the first time we were all together in 10 years.  God blessed us with beautiful weather and good fellowship. We are thankful for how God is working in our families.
