We are back from Cincinnati. Isaac’s surgery went well. The surgery was on Tuesday morning and we left the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. The doctors said everything went really well but the recovery has been kind of slow.
We are still going to have to wait on the biopsy results which could take up to two weeks. We are really praying that it will not be cancer; the doctor said that he thinks that it might not be, but he’s not sure exactly what was wrong with the eye.
Right now Isaac has a gauze patch over his eye and it looks like someone punched him, it’s all black and blue. We are supposed to change the patch twice a day and it’s been horrible, but today Isaac and Josh did it all by themselves.
Isaac has been on Tylenol every four hours since the surgery but today he has not had any and he seems to be doing really great. Our doctor said that it should be getting better and today was really good. We are going to see Dr. Grossnickle here in town [Warsaw, IN] on Monday and then we will have to go back to Cincy in January to get the glass eye fitted.
Once again I have to say that Isaac is the most amazing child. He has been so brave through all of this. He went through so much and he never even asked us why all of this was happening to him, he just seemed to accept it and was so brave about it all.
Please keep us in your prayers. The next month is still going to be really hard and we still have to find out about the biopsy. We are so thankful for everyone that has called and sent e-mails and letters. We are thankful that our little family is together and we have grown so close to each other through all of this.
Isaac is our hero and our families and friends are our support team. Thanks again for praying for us we appreciate it so much. God bless.
