Today we will be heading back down to Pittsburgh so the eye surgeon can check over Jaxson's eye again. We are hoping (and praying) for a good report.
Our church family sent over balloons for Jaxson which gave him such joy!
He keeps his eyes shut a lot...but slowly but surely, is opening them more and more...
Every two hours, we have to lift up his protective guard and put in drops...plus another set of drops 4 times per day. There is ointment he gets twice a day and he also takes an oral antibiotic. We are so thankful for the knowledge and wisdom the doctors have to take such good care of his eye.
Financial services from the hospital called me yesterday. I am not sure exactly how much this is all going to cost...but she said she will help me as much as she can...so that is comforting. We don't have any debt besides our mortgage....so we'll just pay as we can till it's paid off. *So, I suppose, we do have a bit of debt now, don't we? ((deep sigh)).*
Already, we have been blessed my others with gifts to help us with the cost. Just last evening, a friend from church stopped by to bring treats for the children and a gas-gift card for Chris and I, to help with the expense of trips to Pittsburgh. To say it brought me to tears is quite an understatement. God is caring for us through the love and generosity of others...we are forever grateful (and quite humbled too)! I must admit, it is *not* easy accepting money and gifts from others. I have even been emailed by a few who want to help...I can't even begin to tell you how loved we feel! *Thank-You*!
I need to go and get ready to head to Pittsburgh. Below are just a few photos I had taken before the weekend zaney-ness started! So I will share them...and then off I go for the day!
Once again, thank-you, dear friends, for your love, prayers and support through this trial. Words can not describe how truly grateful we are. Thank-You!
With a full and thankful heart,
